Hormonal responses to synthetic atrial natriuretic peptide in patients on regular hemodialysis.

Abstract

The effects of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) on mean arterial blood pressure, heart rate, plasma renin activity, aldosterone, cortisol, norepinephrine, epinephrine and arginine vasopressin were studied in 6 anuric subjects receiving regular hemodialysis. An iv bolus injection of 8 nmol of ANP followed by infusion at 32 pmol.kg-1.min-1 for 1 h in the pre… (More)
