Pressure-induced vasodilation (PIV) delays the decrease in cutaneous blood flow produced by local application of low pressure to the skin, a physiologically appropriate adjustment of local vasomotor function. Individuals without a normal PIV response have a high risk of ulceration. Here we demonstrate that acid-sensing ion channel 3 (Asic3) is an essential neuronal sensor for the vasodilation response to direct pressure in both humans and rodents and for protecting against pressure ulcers in mice.
