The blood pressure in the cardinal vein, cardiac chambers and ventral and dorsal aortae have been recorded from conscious eels in water. At low doses, acetylcholine reduced the heart rate but increased the transbranchial differential blood pressure. The effects were abolished by atropine but not by tubocurarine. At doses in excess of 0.1 mug/kg, a secondary rise in arterial blood pressure was observed which could be abolished by bretylium, phentolamine or phenoxybenzamine. Catecholamines did… CONTINUE READING
