Measurements of cardiac output and organ blood flow in rats using 99Tcm labelled microspheres
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The cardiac output and regional blood flow have been simultaneously determined in the anesthetized rat by using the reference organ method. 99Tcm labelled dextran 15 μm microspheres were injected in the left ventricle while simultaneously an arterial reference sample was drawn at constant known rate. The values calculated regarding cardiac output agree well with previously recorded series. Regional organ blood flow in the rat is presented as ml. min‐1. g‐1 tissue and values do agree with those reported by others. The results indicate that the reference organ method can be used in the rat for the study of cardiac output and regional blood flow.
