Abstract:

The general purpose of this study is to determine the vascular response of an isolated gracilis muscle to hypothermia. Data are presented on three pertinent aspects of this problem 1 the effect of the rate of lowering the temperature on the vascular response of the isolated gracilis muscle, 2 the effect of hypothermia on the oxygen consumption of the resting isolated muscle, and 3 the effect of hypothermia on the reactivity of the vasculature of the isolated muscle.
