Abstract

Subcutaneous injection of epinephrine markedly reduced local tissue pO2 levels and blood flow while increasing tissue pCO2 in a rat model. The duration and magnitude of these effects were correlated with prolonged elevation of tissue levels of epinephrine and were proportional to the amount of epinephrine injected.
