Lymphatic drainage occurs from many portions of the body:
To venous angle:
- axillary lymph nodes
- legs (I think legs' drainage goes through abdomen)
The speed of the lymph drainage is different in each part of the body depending on the situation at hand.
Assume you have tense muscles in the hand (biceps and trieps). The lymphatic drainage there can be lowered and be the limiting factor in the system.
I think lowered lymphatic drainage in one part of the body causes more lymph goes to other parts of the body.
What are the negative results of too high lymphatic drainage in an organ? My intuition
- hypertrophy in some cases (excess of nutrients)
Negative results of too slow lymphatic drainage are the prolonged intoxication times of
- chemical and
- physical factors.
I am trying to find any studies about the effective speed of lymphatic drainage. I have an intuition that the lowest drainage of one section is the limiting factor in the whole system. Is there any studies about how to quantify the speed of lymphatic drainage from one part of the body?
Heart pumps (blood) and sucks (lymph). So probably some cardiovascular study relates the pumping to the lymphatic drainage.
