Plasma and cerebrospinal fluid vasopressin and osmolality in relation to thirst


Conscious dogs chronically implanted with a device for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) sampling from the anterior 3rd ventricle were submitted to 24 h dehydration. During rehydration by drinking the total water intake (TWI) after 16 min was determined in 8 and after 90 min in 14 experiments. Samples were simultaneously drawn to determine the osmolalities (Posm… (More)
