Alteration in skeletal muscle afferents in rats with chronic heart failure.

Abstract

An exaggerated exercise pressor reflex (EPR) contributes to exercise intolerance and excessive sympatho-excitation in the chronic heart failure (CHF) state. However, the components of this reflex that are responsible for the exaggerated EPR in CHF remain unknown. To determine whether muscle afferent function is altered in CHF, we recorded the discharge of… (More)
