We investigated changes in the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in seven patients with essential hypertension during treatment with captopril (SQ 14225) (300 to 450 mg/day) for 12 months. While blood pressure decreased, the plasma-renin concentration increased to 700 percent of the initial value (6.1 +/- 2.5 ng angiotensin l/ml . h) and angiotensin I(More)
Hormonal factors may be important in the regulation of peripheral vascular resistance (PVR) in congestive heart failure (CHF). The role of the renin-angiotensin system in the development of CHF was studied in 16 unanesthetized dogs. CHF was induced by rapid right ventricular pacing, with and without chronic converting-enzyme inhibition (CEI) by captopril.(More)
Physiological stimulation can be achieved by either bifocal or rate responsive pacing. The latter pacemakers adapt the heart rate to physical activity by biological signals. Of many possible approaches only three pacemaker systems for rate responsive pacing are available: the QT pacemaker (Tx or Quintech), the respiratory Biorate pacemaker and the activity(More)
