Cardiovascular hemodynamics and vasopressin blockade in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats.


In conscious rats with near-malignant phases of DOCA-salt (DS) hypertension, hemodynamics were studied with microspheres before and after administration of a vasopressin (VP) vasopressor antagonist in relation to plasma VP levels (pVP). Compared to the controls, the DS rats showed significant elevations in mean arterial pressure (MAP), total vascular… (More)
