The role of adrenal medullary catecholamine release in the response to a cold pressor test.


We studied the effects of a cold pressor test on the plasma catecholamine levels of ten patients undergoing coronary angiography, to determine whether the pressor changes were related to adrenergic activity. To investigate the relative contribution of adrenal medullary catecholamine release, we subjected two adrenalectomised volunteers to the same test… (More)
