Mechanical compression during repeated sustained isometric muscle contractions and hyperemic recovery in healthy young males.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An elevated intramuscular pressure during a single forearm isometric muscle contraction may restrict muscle hyperemia. However, during repeated isometric exercise, it is unclear to what extent mechanical compression and muscle vasodilatation contribute to the magnitude and time course of beat-to-beat limb hemodynamics, due to alterations in leg vascular conductance (LVC).
