Circulating Coronary Blood Volume
The circulating coronary blood volume was calculated in dogs from independent determinations of the rate of coronary blood flow and the mean circulation time from the root of the aorta to the mouth of the coronary sinus. The average value was 14.2±2.2 ml/100 g lean myocardium. Coronary blood volume was inversely related to the heart rate, which ranged from 126 to 212 beats/min, but was not correlated with other hemodynamic variables within the relatively narrow range of values present.
