The high-pressure or arterial baroreceptors and low-pressure or atrial receptors are believed to participate in the reflex control of arginine vasopressin (AVP) and renin secretion. The current concept of the control system is that at normal blood volume and pressure, afferent impulses from the receptors tonically inhibit central mechanisms controlling secretion of AVP and renin. Thus, a reduction in blood volume or pressure causes a decrease in receptor activity and a reflex increase in… CONTINUE READING
