Platelet free cytosolic calcium (PFCC) was measured in 21 healthy volunteers before and after cigarette smoking or physical exercise. The aim was to investigate whether acute blood pressure changes and increases in circulating levels of catecholamines and vasopressin modify PFCC. PFCC was determined using the Quin-2 method. Following cigarette smoking, significant increases in blood pressure, heart rate, plasma epinephrine (35 +/- 18 pg/ml before versus 51 +/- 31 pg/ml after smoking, P less… CONTINUE READING
