Most investigations of regional circulatory responses to hemorrhage have been complicated by intentional prelongation of the hypovolemic state to induce hemorrhagic shock. The metabolic derangements of shock significantly alter vascular reactivity and obscure local circulatory adaptions to homorrhage per se. The object of this investigation was to measure mesenteric, renal and femoral vascular responses to varying degrees of hemorrhage of brief duration and to reinfusion of the blood. A relatively homogeneous group of dogs were selected on the basis of a pre-determined range of acceptable hemodynamic values. Author
