Renal sympathetic nerve activity and natriuresis during water immersion in conscious dogs.


The role of renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA) in the natriuresis and diuresis induced by head-out water immersion (WI) was studied in eight conscious female dogs. The dog was instrumented chronically with a stainless steel electrode for the measurement of RSNA and two catheters for the measurements of systemic arterial (Pa) and central venous (Pv… (More)
