Sorry, no etymologies found.
It is also the best form of self-expression; and its advantage is variability, following the impulsion of the idle, perhaps hyperemic, and overnourished centers most ready to act.
Our current findings demonstrate that reproducible PIMR measurements can be made in the baboon pulmonary circulation using either adenosine or papaverine as hyperemic agents, yielding a value of approximately 5.5 mmHg. sec in the intact lung microvasculature.
These findings, along with our previous observations that maximal pulmonary hyperemic doses of both adenosine and papaverine do not affect the diameter of the segmental pulmonary arteries of baboons
Baseline and maximal adenosine-induced hyperemic hemodynamics were recorded 60secs after each microsphere bolus.
Peak hyperemic flow assessment using thermodilution-derived mean transit-time (T mn) facilitate accurate coronary microcirculatory evaluation, but remain unvalidated in the lung circulation.
Mean transit time-derived PFR and PIMR can be assessed using a TPSG and adenosine or papaverine as hyperemic agents.
Assessments of flow reserve seek to quantify the magnitude of maximum recruitable vascular reserves through the ratio of maximum hyperemic to baseline blood flow.
 (IMR = maximum hyperemic distal coronary artery pressure times maximum hyperemic T mn) has been proven to be more microcirculation-specific
Using TPSG to measure Tmn and the maximum hyperemic doses of either adenosine or papaverine to induce maximal pulmonary hyperemia, we thus measured PIMR in the intact pulmonary microvasculature of 10 animals.
In keeping with this proof-of-concept study design, we also restricted our choice of hyperemic stimuli to those most commonly employed for in vivo assessment of the microcirculation, namely, adenosine and papaverine.
