[Increase of the pressor response to angiotensin II in normal pregnancy. A sign of increasing blood volume more than decreasing vascular reactivity].

Abstract

Plasma volume and the pressor dose of angiotensin II were estimated in 15 normotensive pregnant women during the second and third trimester and 2-3 months post-partum together. Plasma volume estimated by the Evans Blue technique increased during pregnancy significantly more than the body weight: its increase was 37 and 54% of the post-partum values whereas… (More)
