Biovalves, autologous tri-leaflet valved conduits, are formed in the subcutaneous spaces of animals. The valves are formed using molds encapsulated with autologous connective tissues. However, tissue migration into the small apertures in the molds for leaflet formation is generally slower than that for conduit formation around the molds. In this ...

Aim: Vasovagal syncope is common in young women, but its etiology remains elusive. Orthostatic stress-induced lower limb blood pooling is linked with central hypovolemia and baroreceptor unloading. Venous distension in the arm elicits sympathetic response, enhanced with greater distension speed. Our aim was to study both amount and speed of ...

Transfusion of long-stored red blood cells (RBCs) is associated with decreased in vivo RBC recovery, delivery of RBC breakdown products, and increased morbidity and mortality. Reducing the burden of this RBC "storage lesion" is a major challenge in transfusion medicine. Additive solution-7 (AS-7) is a new RBC storage solution designed ...

Insulin-stimulated increases in skeletal muscle blood flow play a role in glucose disposal. Indeed, 7 days of aerobic exercise in type 2 diabetes patients increased blood flow responses to an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and improved glucose tolerance. More recent work suggests that reduced daily physical activity impairs glycemic ...

Cellular hypoxic preconditioning is being employed to obtain complex, yet physiological, secretomes rich is angiogenic factors. We previously proposed exposing peripheral blood cells (PBCs) to hypoxic stress stimulation, and demonstrated that controlled release of PBC-derived factor mixtures induces directional microvessel growth in vitro. Hypoxia therefore provides a useful tool for ...

Obstructive sleep apnea, a condition associated with chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH), carries an increased risk of stroke. However, CIH has been reported to either increase or decrease brain injury in models of focal cerebral ischemia. The factors determining the differential effects of CIH on ischemic injury and their mechanisms remain ...

Long distance air travel is associated with an increased risk of venous thrombosis. The most obvious factor that can explain air travel related thrombosis is prolonged seated immobilization. In addition, hypobaric hypoxia has been shown to affect coagulation and the lowered atmospheric pressures present in the cabin during the flight ...

Under normoxic conditions, a reduction in arterial carbon dioxide tension (PaCO2) causes cerebral vasoconstriction, thereby reducing cerebral blood flow (CBF) and modifying dynamic cerebral autoregulation (dCA). To what extent these effects are altered by acute hypoxia and the associated hypoxic ventilatory response (respiratory chemoreflex) is unclear. This study tested the ...

We examined whether: 1) global-cerebral blood flow (CBF) would increase across a six hours bout of normobaric poikilocapnic hypoxia and be mediated by a larger increase in blood flow in vertebral artery (VA) than in the internal carotid artery (ICA) 2); additional increases in global-CBF will be evident following an ...

Fish routinely encounter hypoxic environments, which may have detrimental effects on digestion and performance. The present study measured oxygen consumption (MO2), gastrointestinal blood flow (GBF), cardiac output (Vb) and heart rate (fH) in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss at 10-11.5°C while exposed to a 1.5h step-wise hypoxia treatment (80, 60 and ...

Glia account for 90% of human brain cells and have a significant role in brain homeostasis. Thus, specific in vivo imaging markers of glial metabolism are potentially valuable. In the brain, 2-fluoroacetate is selectively taken up by glial cells and becomes metabolically trapped in the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Recent work ...

The best conceivable treatment for hypoxia-ischemia (HI) is the restoration of blood flow to the hypoxic-ischemic region(s). Our objective was to examine whether boosting NO-cGMP signaling using sildenafil citrate, a phosphodiesterase-type 5 inhibitor, could modify cerebral blood flow and reduce lesions in the developing brain. HI was induced in P7 ...

Incidence of blood flow through intracardiac shunt and intrapulmonary arteriovenous anastomoses (IPAVA) may differ between Sherpas permanently residing at high altitude (HA) and sea-level (SL) inhabitants as a result of evolutionary pressure to improve gas exchange and/or resting pulmonary hemodynamics. To test this hypothesis we compared sea-level inhabitants at SL ...

ABSTRACT. Early detection of tissue hypoxia in the intensive care unit is essential for effective treatment. Reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) has been suggested to be the most sensitive indicator of tissue oxygenation at the mitochondrial level. However, no experimental evidence comparing the kinetics of changes in NADH and other ...

As it remains unclear whether hypoxia of cardiomyocytes could trigger the release of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in humans, we investigated whether breathing normobaric hypoxic gas mixture increases the circulating NT-proBNP in healthy male subjects. Ten healthy young men (age 29 ± 5 yrs, BMI 24.7 ± 2.8 kg/m2) breathed normobaric hypoxic gas mixture (11% O2/89% N2) ...

Cerebral autoregulation (CA) acts to maintain brain blood flow despite fluctuations in perfusion pressure. Acute hypoxia is thought to impair CA, but it is unclear if CA is affected by acclimatization or related to the development of acute mountain sickness (AMS). We assessed changes in CA using transfer function analysis ...

Cerebral hypoxemia associated with rapid ascent to high altitude can be life threatening; yet, with proper acclimatization, cerebral function can be maintained well enough for humans to thrive. We investigated adjustments in global and regional cerebral oxygen delivery (DO2) as 21 healthy volunteers rapidly ascended and acclimatized to 5260m. Ultrasound ...

Diabetic foot is traditionally attributed to a triad of neuropathy, ischemia and infection. Cellular hypoxia in diabetic foot can neither be attributed to an occlusive large artery disease (which are mostly patent) nor to the so called diabetic small vessel disease (where such occlusion was never proved). The physiological findings ...

This study quantified and compared hypoxia tolerance and swim performance among cyprinid fish species from rapid-flow, slow-flow and intermediate-flow habitats (4 species per habitat) in China. In addition, we explored effects of short-term acclimation on swim performance, maximum metabolic rate (Mo2 max) and gill remodelling to detect habitat-associated patterns of ...

Hypoxic hypoxia (inspiratory hypoxia) stimulates an increase in cerebral blood flow (CBF) maintaining oxygen delivery to the brain. However, this response, particularly at the tissue level, is not well characterised. This study quantifies the CBF response to acute hypoxic hypoxia in healthy subjects. A 20-min hypoxic (mean P(ETO2) = 52 ...

The mortality after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is 50%, and most survivors suffer severe functional and cognitive deficits. Half of SAH patients deteriorate 5 to 14 days after the initial bleeding, so-called delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). Although often attributed to vasospasms, DCI may develop in the absence of angiographic vasospasms, ...

Systemic hypoxia causes skeletal muscle vasodilation, thereby preserving O2 delivery to active tissues. Nitric oxide (NO), adenosine, and prostaglandins contribute to this vasodilation, but other factors may also play a role. We tested the hypothesis that regional inhibition of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor with the cytochrome P-450 2C9 antagonist fluconazole, alone ...

In rainbow trout development, a switch occurs from high-affinity embryonic hemoglobin (Hb) and round, embryonic erythrocytes to lower-affinity adult Hb and oval, adult erythrocytes. Our study investigated the early ontogeny of rainbow trout blood properties and the hypoxia response. We hypothesized that hypoxia exposure would delay the ontogenetic turnover of ...

Diabetic nephropathy is strongly associated with both increased oxidative stress and kidney tissue hypoxia. The increased oxidative stress causes increased kidney oxygen consumption resulting in kidney tissue hypoxia. To date, it has been difficult to determine the role of kidney hypoxia, per se, for the development of nephropathy. We tested ...

Massive small bowel resection (SBR) results in an adaptive response within the remnant bowel. We have previously shown an immediate reduction in intestinal blood flow and oxygen saturation (sO2) after SBR. We therefore sought to determine the duration of resection-induced intestinal hypoxia and expression of hypoxia-inducible factors (HIFs) following SBR. ...
