Low-dose infusions of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) into humans reduce cardiac filling pressures without enhancing renal excretion or producing vasodilation. The present human study was undertaken to seek an effect of ANP on capillary filtration in humans and to determine its relationship to reductions in cardiac filling pressures. Heart rate (electrocardiogram), blood pressure (cuff method), and renal excretion of salt and water were determined, and central venous pressure (jugular vein… CONTINUE READING
