Through increments in blood volume and atrial pressure are thought to be the primary stimuli for ANF secretion, plasma levels of this peptide do not always behave as a simple function of volume status. To outline the relationship between the latter and cardiac ANF release, we used five different volume-expansion protocols in anesthetized dogs. A stepwise… CONTINUE READING
