The effect of intravertebral infusion of angiotensin II on cardiac vagal efferent activity was studied in anesthetized mongrel dogs. Unilateral infusion of doses of angiotensin II as low as 5 ng/kg/min inhibited basal vagal tone and also decreased the slope of the relationship between cardiac vagal efferent activity and systolic blood pressure. Intravenous… CONTINUE READING
