The Hypoxic Response to Hypovolemia
The induction of hypovolemia within an organism triggers off many, closely associated processes whereby individual details of their spatial and temporal interactions are not yet fully understood. The most important primary responses to hypovolemia are:
reduction in the transport of O2 and CO2 molecules
decrease in velocity of capillary flow as a consequence of the resulting hypotension
change in capillary perfusion pattern of the various organs.
