Recently developed radiotracer methods for measuring the overall rate of release of noradrenaline to plasma, for the body as a whole, can be used to estimate 'total sympathetic nervous system activity' in humans. These techniques find application in clinical studies of sympathetic nervous physiology and pharmacology. The inherent weakness of any biochemical test of global sympathetic tone such as this lies in the fact that sympathetic nervous system responses typically show regional… CONTINUE READING
