We tested the hypothesis that atrial distension (stimulation of cardiopulmonary baroreceptors) is not the single pivotal stimulus for the acute suppression of renin release during water immersion in humans and that immersion-induced haemodilution constitutes an important additional stimulus. In nine healthy male subjects, identical increases in atrial distension were induced by two immersion procedures (of 30 min each); one without (WI) and one with attenuation (WI + cuff) of the concomitant… CONTINUE READING
