In previous reports from this laboratory, it has been proposed that stress ulceration results from a severe gastric mucosal energy deficit due to shock-induced mucosal ischemia. In the experiments described in this report, the hypothesis was further tested by studying stress ulceration and gastric mucosal energy metabolism in rabbits subjected to hemorrhagic shock with or without the concomitant administration of an alpha-adrenergic blocking agent. Our data show that stress ulceration and gastric mucosal energy deficits are significantly less severe when shock is combined with alpha-adrenergic blockade.
