Various factors such as blood pressure, blood velocity, and muscle contraction, influence oxygenation of muscle tissue. One of the various functions of skeletal muscle is regulation of the blood supply to the organs. It is known that in case of a shock the blood flow of skeletal muscle is reduced prior to those of other important organs.
