Example text

Overall, there is a fall in total peripheral resistance. 1). The net effect of the rise in cardiac output and fall in total peripheral resistance is a moderate rise in blood pressure, which increases with increasing exercise intensity. Diastolic blood pressure rises less than systolic blood pressure and in some subjects may even fall a little. The mechanisms that initiate and maintain the cardiovascular response to exercise are not resolved completely, but there is evidence that both central command and reflexes from the exercising muscles play a part.

Increased acidity, increased CO2, increased adenosine, increased K+, increased osmolality and increased phosphate and decreased O2 all contribute to metabolic vasodilation, but the relative importance of these factors differs in different tissues. Metabolic hyperaemia is the main mechanism of the vasodilation in exercising skeletal muscle and probably is mediated mainly by adenosine. The cerebral circulation is especially sensitive to CO2; when this is lowered by hyperventilation, the vasoconstriction can be severe enough to lead to visual disturbance and light-headedness.

Bradykinin is also produced by sweat glands and may contribute to the skin vasodilation that occurs when core temperature rises. Serotonin and thromboxane A2 released from platelets cause local vasoconstriction. NERVOUS CONTROL OF THE BLOOD VESSELS At times, blood flow to a tissue needs to be adjusted to serve not its own needs but those of the body as a whole. This control is mediated mostly by nerves. Blood flow to the skin increases to many times that needed for its own metabolism as part of thermoregulatory response to heat stress.
