Abnormal cardiovascular control after spinal cord injury (SCI) results in hypotension soon after injury. Later, paroxysmal hypertension and bradycardia in response to sensory stimulation below the level of injury develop in most people with SCI. In this study, we used a radiotelemetry system, in rats (n = 7), to investigate the effect of a clinically relevant compression model of SCI at T5 spinal segment on mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) at rest and in response to colorectal… CONTINUE READING
