Poster #23: Teasha Luu – Reactive-Hyperemia and Microvascular Function: A Comparison of Methods

Reactive hyperemia refers to the increase in blood flow following a stimulus. While previous studies have compared reactive hyperemia between microvascular and macrovascular function, studies comparing microvascular reactive hyperemia have not been performed. In this project, the reactive hyperemia induced by passive leg movement and induced following tissue ischemia were compared. We hypothesized that these assessments of microvascular function would be significantly correlated to one another.
