ABSTRACT
1) Three independent measurements were used to assess the effects of alcohol and nitroglycerin on peripheral blood flow. Skin temperatures evaluated blood flow to the skin, pulse wave velocity indicated changes in deep vessels and impedance plethysmography measured deep and superficial effects. 2) Alcohol resulted in significant changes in pulse wave velocity. 3) Nitroglycerin resulted in significant increases in pulse wave velocity, blood pulse volume and blood flow to calf segments (P = .001). There was no significant change in skin temperature during the time of study. 4) Results of this study suggest that nitroglycerin and alcohol have different actions on peripheral segments. 5) Administration of vasodilators to patients with peripheral vascular disease should be evaluated with quantitative methods during treatment.
