Forearm blood flow (FBF; Doppler and Echo ultrasound of the brachial artery) and deep venous forearm blood lactate and H+ concentration ([La-], [H+) were measured every minute for 10 min post-IHG under three conditions: passive (passive rest), active (rhythmic exercise at 10% maximum voluntary contraction), and massage (effleurage and petrissage).
To measure the drug's effect on blood vessels directly without influencing the brain or heart, they administered two different doses of cocaine into the artery of the forearm and measured blood pressure, forearm blood flow, and forearm venous noradrenaline concentration in the same study participants on two different days.
