Possible role of juxtaglomerular apparatus in low cardiac output syndrome and multiple organ failure: modulation by high sodium load.

Abstract

Sympathetic overdrive in acute low cardiac output syndrome, diverts blood from cutaneous and visceral circulation centripetally. Microcirculation in general, and renal circulation in particular, deteriorates during these circulatory adjustments leading to multi-organ failure (MOF). Decreased afferent glomerular arteriolar blood flow, increased renal… (More)
