Translocation of Blood from the Isolated Dog's Hindlimb During Levarterenol Infusion and Sciatic Nerve Stimulation
Changes in weight, arterial and peripheral venous pressures, and venous outflow were measured during levarterenol infusion and sciatic nerve stimulation in an isolated hindlimb with constant arterial inflow. Our results indicate that the weight loss which occurs during these procedures is caused by peripheral venous constriction, and that the loss of volume from the hindlimb is almost entirely from the intravascular compartment.
