||Primary source Burton & Johnson 1972: "Red cell velocity profiles in individual capillaries were studied in the sartorius muscle of the cat during reactive hyperemia using a dual-slit photometric system." Primary source Johnson et al., 1976, abstract: "Reactive hyperemia was studied in cat sartorius muscle by measurement of venous outflow and capillary red cell velocity following occlusions of 5-120 s."
||P.152 3rd paragraph: "There are a few reports dealing with the direct measurements of linear RBC [red blood cell] velocity in muscle capillaries. An average velocity of 0.38±0.02 mm/sec was found in capillaries of the cat sartorius muscle (primary sources)."
