We studied the effect of 12 weeks of ethanol feeding on arterial blood pressure and baroceptor reflex control of heart rate in Sprague-Dawley and Wistar rats. Baroceptor reflex sensitivity and pressor responsiveness were evaluated by evoking graded rises in mean arterial pressure with increasing doses of phenylephrine and angiotensin II. After 12 weeks of ethanol feeding there was a modest increase in mean arterial pressure with no change in heart rate in both strains. When angiotensin II or… CONTINUE READING
