Computer-assisted intravital microscopy (CAIM) was used to study the real-time post-vasopressin microvascular changes in a canine hemorrhagic shock model. The bulbar conjunctiva was used as a readily accessible non-invasive microvascular site in this study. Vasopressin was infused (n=6) as an IV loading bolus followed by a 1-hr infusion. Dogs receiving an equal volume of saline served as controls (n=3). Within minutes after vasopressin treatment, significant (P95%) conjunctival vessels. Post-vasopressin tissue oxygenation values decreased significantly (P
