The effect of aspirin on peripheral haemodynamic changes following submaximal exercise in normal volunteers.


Eight normal healthy volunteers participated in a study to determine the effect of 1800 mg of aspirin on the peripheral haemodynamic changes that occur following upright exercise. Aspirin reduced the extent of calf hyperaemia (p less than 0.05) and accentuated the reduction in forearm blood flow (p less than 0.05) following exercise. It had no effect on either calf or forearm blood flow at rest. These results indicate that aspirin, possibly by inhibiting prostacyclin production, modifies the circulatory changes following upright exercise.
