  • Values are means ± SE. HD, hemodilution (n = 10); SC, sham controls (n = 5); BL, baseline; VRIsys, systemic vascular resistance index; VRImes, mesenteric vascular resistance index. For the HD steps, the exchange volume is given in ml/kg;

  • * P < 0.05 vs. SC.

  • P < 0.05 vs. baseline.

  • P < 0.05 vs. previous measurement.
