Measurements have been made to study any peripheral vascular changes associated with the menstrual cycle in the normal woman. There appear to be no reports on the influence of the menstrual cycle on peripheral blood flow, limb volume and venous distensibility. The influence of pregnancy on these changes has been studied recently by Gindsberg and Duncan and Hytten and Taggert. Regular weekly limb volume measurements have been made on 30 female subjects between the ages of 18 and 32 over a period of 4 to 18 months, totaling 162 cycles.

    Cyclic changes in maximum blood How were observed in all the normal women, significant changes were not seen in the four men studied. It has been observed that at certain stages of the normal menstrual cycle, maximum blood flow values fall to as low a level as 13.6 ml per 100 ml of tissue per...

    Introduction: Arterial compliance will result in stabilizing the fluctuations in arterial pressure and blood flow. So arterial stiffness can be a good indicator for monitoring the cardiovascular system. Arterial stiffness can be measured using indices like reflection index (Rl), stiffness index...

    The veno-arteriolar reflex (VAR) in spinal-cord-injured subjects (SCI) has been attributed little interest, although it might contribute substantially to their blood redistribution. This peripheral reflex response, which is based on an axon reflex, consists of a reduction in limb blood flow...

    We performed two experiments to describe the magnitude of delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) associated with blood flow restriction (BFR) exercise and to determine the contribution of the concentric (CON) versus eccentric (ECC) actions of BFR exercise on DOMS. In experiment 1, nine subjects...
