The effects of hydrazine upon renal blood flow in the dog were measured using the noncannulating electromagnetic flowmeter. Selective injection of hydrazine into the left renal artery resulted in increased blood flow without concomitant changes in central aortic blood pressure. The maximum amplitude of the increase was between 40 and 74 ml.min., and did not vary appreciably with doses in the range of 10 to 50 mg. Duration of increased flow was approximately proportional to dose, the effects of 10 mg. lasting for 90 to 100 seconds and those of 50 mg. for 600 to 700 seconds. Hydrazine did not increase femoral blood flow when selectively injected into the femoral artery. Author
