The purpose of this study was to determine the respective contributions of tachycardia and increases in sympathetic nerve activity (SNA) in mediating the pressor responses to fatiguing vs. nonfatiguing levels of isometric handgrip exercise (IHE) in humans. We performed direct (microneurographic) measurements of muscle SNA from the right peroneal nerve in the leg and recorded arterial pressure (AP) and heart rate (HR) in eight healthy subjects before (control), during, and after 2.5 min of IHE… CONTINUE READING
