Peripheral chemoreflex activation with potassium cyanide (KCN) in awake rats or in the working heart-brainstem preparation (WHBP) produces: (a) a sympathoexcitatory/pressor response; (b) bradycardia;(More)
In some pathological conditions such as hypertension, there is an impairment in the autonomic control of blood pressure resulting in changes in baroreflex sensitivity. In the present study we tested(More)
Peripheral chemoreceptors located in the carotid bodies are the primary sensors of systemic hypoxia. Although the pattern of responses elicited by peripheral chemoreceptor activation is well(More)
