Local Metabolic Influences on Resistance Vessels

  • David E. Mohrman
Part of the Vascular Biomedicine book series (VB)


In many important organs such as the brain, heart, and skeletal muscle, it is clear that the control of resistance-vessel tone is dominated by local metabolic mechanisms that automatically adjust organ blood flow to match changing metabolic needs of the tissue. This chapter will highlight results from microcirculatory approaches to identifying the mechanisms important in local vascular control. Also considered are the interactions that must exist in vivo between local metabolic mechanisms and the other known influences on resistance vessels, described in other chapters of this work.
