The effects of a moderate reflex activation of the sympathetic nervous system on renal blood flow (RBF) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) were studied in 29 experiments on seven conscious foxhounds. Autoregulation parameters were derived by a stepwise reduction of renal artery pressure of 10-mmHg decrements. An occlusion of both common carotid arteries (CCO) was used as a moderate sympathetic stimulus. This procedure did not influence the basal levels of RBF and GFR. However, the lower… CONTINUE READING
