Stress increases renal nerve activity and decreases sodium excretion in Dahl rats.


The effects of a stressful environmental stimulus (air stress) on mean arterial pressure, renal sympathetic nerve activity, and renal function were examined in conscious Dahl salt-sensitive (DS) and Dahl salt-resistant rats (DR) on low (0.4%) and high (8%) NaCl diets.
