The cardiovascular response to severe whole-body heating was examined in anesthetized spontaneously hypertensive (SH) (mean BP = 140 Torr) and normotensive (N) rats (mean BP = 96 Torr). Elevation of colonic temperature to 44 degrees C resulted in an initial increase in arterial pressure (mean BP: SH = 199 Torr, N = 124 Torr) with a subsequent severe hypotension. There was little evidence to suggest that this collapse in systemic pressure was related to a direct heat impairment of cardiac… CONTINUE READING
