Increases in circulating atrial natriuretic factor during immersion-induced central hypervolaemia in normal humans.

Abstract

The role of atrial natriuretic factor (ANF) in modulating volume and circulatory homeostasis remains uncertain, and there has been as yet no systematic analysis of the factors promoting ANF release in humans. Since immersion in water to the neck provides a 'volume stimulus' identical to that induced by 2 litres of saline, without plasma compositional change… (More)
