Summary The systemic pressor response to bolus injections of Angiotensin I (A-I) into the pulmonary artery (PA) and the aortic root (Ao) was compared in 11 children during routine left and right heart catheterization; five had a left-to-right shunt and 6 had no hemodynamic abnorm'alities. An additional 4 children with normal hemodynamics were tested with Angiotensin I1,(A-II). Systemic pressor peaks to PA injections of A-I were slightly higher than those resulting from Ao injections.
