The effects of capsaicin applied perineurally to the cervical vagus nerves have been studied on cardiovascular and respiratory functions in urethane anaesthetized cats. Application of capsaicin resulted in a moderate but significant decrease in the mean arterial blood pressure and in changes of the heart rate whose direction and magnitude depended on the initial cardiac frequency. Subsequent to these alterations, which may be attributed to a direct stimulation by capsaicin of vagal afferents, a… CONTINUE READING
