Table 3. Cardiac and Regional Hemodynamic Values before Saline, l-NMA Infusion, and Protamine Administration in Dogs Treated with Protamine
n = 6. Data are mean ± SEM.
*P < 0.05 versus before N -methyl-l arginine (l-NMA).
MAP = mean arterial pressure; CO = cardiac output; SVR = systemic vascular resistance; PAP = pulmonary arterial pressure; PVR = pulmonary vascular resistance; dP/dt = first derivative of left ventricular pressure; Car BF = carotid blood flow; Ver BF = vertebral BF; Cor BF = coronary BF; Por BF = portal BF; Hep BF = hepatic BF; T Hep BF = total hepatic BF; Mes BF = mesenteric BF; Ren BF = renal BF; Car VR = carotid vascular resistance; Ver VR = vertebral VR; Cor VR = coronary VR; Hep VR = hepatic VR; Mes VR = mesenteric VR; Ren VR = renal VR.
