The sympathetic nervous system helps regulate both physiologic and metabolic functions. Norepinephrine usually mediates the physiologic functions, including heart rate, myocardial contractility, vasomotor tone, and blood pressure. Epinephrine produces the metabolic effects--including hyperglycemia, hyperlactacidemia, hyperlipemia, increased oxygen consumption, and serum potassium changes. Many of the metabolic effects are common to hypertension. Understanding the metabolic effects of the… CONTINUE READING
