The relationships between hemodynamic state and plasma components of the renin-angiotensin and adrenergic nervous systems were studied in 42 patients admitted to an intensive care unit with acute heart failure. Patients were allocated to four subsets according to cardiac output and pulmonary wedge pressure. Plasma renin activity and angiotensin II were… CONTINUE READING
