Studies on neural regulation of blood pressure in hypertension

Abstract:

Resetting of baroreceptor afferent firing in hypertensive animals, and the reduction in baroreflex regulation of the heart rate seen in man, are thought to be secondary to changes in vascular distensibility in hypertension.

Diminished baroreflex sensitivity should be reflected in a withdrawal of inhibition of sympathetic nervous function. This hypothesis was investigated in 62 hypertensive subjects using three indirect indices of sympathetic nervous activity: (1) the haemodynamic r...
