To characterize the hemodynamic events responsible for alterations in renal function during administration of atrial natriuretic peptide, we studied the systemic, renal, and glomerular circulatory effects of intravenous rANP[126-149], administered as a 4 micrograms/kg prime and 0.5 microgram/kg per minute continuous infusion in anesthetized, euvolemic rats. With this protocol, a small decline in mean systemic arterial blood pressure occurred in the context of markedly enhanced urinary sodium… CONTINUE READING
