Artificial baroreflex system restores volume tolerance in the absence of native baroreflex


The arterial baroreflex stabilizes arterial pressure by modulating the mechanical properties of cardiovascular system. We previously demonstrated that the baroreflex impairment makes the circulatory system extremely sensitive to volume overload and predisposes to pulmonary edema irrespective of left ventricular systolic function. To overcome the volume… (More)
