The influence of left ventricular pressure on the vascular responses to changes in carotid sinus pressure in anaesthetized dogs.

The aim of this study was to determine whether the degree of stimulation of left ventricular receptors influenced the sensitivity of the carotid sinus baroreceptor reflex. In anaesthetized dogs, the stimulus to left ventricular receptors was changed by changing aortic root and hence ventricular systolic pressure, using a preparation in which the applied… CONTINUE READING
