The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of plasma volume expansion on the cardiac and peripheral components of the baroreceptor reflex. Nine male Rhesus monkeys were chronically instrumented to measure arterial pressure and aortic blood flow. The aortic arch was denervated at the time of surgery. Bilateral carotid artery occlusion (BCO) was used to elicit the carotid sinus reflex both before and after 25% plasma volume expansion with an iso-osmotic dextran solution. The BCO… CONTINUE READING
