The metabolic increment that occurs after feeding demands cardiovascular adjustments to be maintained, as increased heart rate (fH ) and cardiac output. In mammals, postprandial tachycardia seems to be triggered by an increase in adrenergic activity and by nonadrenergic noncholinergic (NANC) factors, while in ectothermic vertebrates, this adjustment seems… CONTINUE READING
