Enhanced exercise-induced rise of aldosterone and vasopressin preceding mountain sickness.
A possible contribution of exercise to the fluid retention associated with acute mountain sickness (AMS) was investigated in 17 mountaineers who underwent an exercise test for 30 min on a bicycleExpand
Effect of various therapeutic approaches on plasma potassium and major regulating factors in terminal renal failure.
PURPOSE The development of life-threatening hyperkalemia poses a risk for patients with chronic preterminal renal failure. Various therapeutic options have been suggested for hyperkalemic emergenciesExpand
Sodium-volume factor, cardiovascular reactivity and hypotensive mechanism of diuretic therapy in mild hypertension associated with diabetes mellitus.
Abstract Diabetes mellitus is often associated with excess body sodium and frequently accompanied by hypertension. Relationships among blood pressure and various regulatory factors were studiedExpand
Sodium, renin, aldosterone, catecholamines, and blood pressure in diabetes mellitus.
Interrelations among plasma renin activity (PRA), aldosterone and cortisole levels, 0lood volume, exchangeable sodium, urinary catecholamines, and blood pressure were studied in 35 normal subjectsExpand
Effects of slow ascent to 4559 M on fluid homeostasis.
Since acute mountain sickness (AMS) is associated with rapid ascent and with fluid retention, we assessed clinical status and fluid homeostasis in men slowly ascending on foot over 3 d to 4559 m andExpand
Relation of arterial pressure with body sodium, body potassium and plasma potassium in essential hypertension.
1. Exchangeable sodium (NaE), plasma electrolytes and arterial pressure were measured in 121 normal subjects and 91 patients with untreated essential hypertension (diastolic greater than 100 mmHg),Expand
Blood levels and renal effects of atrial natriuretic peptide in normal man.
Since mammalian atria were recently found to contain vasoactive and natriuretic peptides, we investigated the following in normal humans: plasma human atrial natriuretic peptide concentrations,Expand
Plasma levels and dialysance of atrial natriuretic peptide in terminal renal failure.
Plasma immunoreactive atrial natriuretic peptide (irANP) levels, their chromatographic profile, relationship with hemodynamic variables, and responses to hemodialysis (HD) or postural changes wereExpand
Atrial natriuretic peptide in acute mountain sickness.
To test the hypothesis that elevated atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) may be involved in altered fluid homeostasis at high altitude, we examined 25 mountaineers at an altitude of 550 m and 6, 18, andExpand
