<jats:p> Pulmonary, splanchnic, and interscapular O2 uptake was studied in 14 male volunteers before and for 90 min after a mixed meal. Thermistor catheters were inserted into a hepatic vein, the azygous vein, the pulmonary artery, and the aorta. Systemic and regional blood flows were determined during indirect calorimetry measurements and recordings of blood temperature. After the meal, pulmonary O2 uptake rose by 33-49 ml/min and splanchnic O2 uptake increased by 16-25 ml/min. In the azygous region O2 uptake did not increase significantly. Cardiac output increased after the meal by 1.1-1.5 l/min and splanchnic blood flow rose by 0.4-0.9 l/min. Azygous venous b...
