The frequent accompaniment of hypertension by orthostatic circulatory disorders prompted us to investigate the effect of repeated and sustained head-up and head-down tilt positions on cardiovascular responses in spontaneously hypertensive rats vs. Wistar rats using radiotelemetric implants. Repeated orthostasis caused a transient elevation in blood pressure… CONTINUE READING
