Ventral (VAP) and dorsal (DAP) aortic blood pressure, heart rate (HR) and cardiac output ( $$\dot Q$$ ) were recorded simultaneously in unanaesthetized Atlantic cod, and the effects of vasoactive drugs on the cardio-vascular parameters studied. Mean resting values for the parameters were VAP=4,39 kPa, DAP=2,49 kPa, HR=41 beats/min, and $$\dot Q$$ = 29,1 ml/min×kg. Adrenaline constricted the systemic vasculature, dilated the branchial vasculature and caused a decrease of HR and $$\dot Q$$ due to… CONTINUE READING
