Cardiac and arterial baroreflex control of the circulation is abnormal in both human and experimental heart failure. Ventricular vagal afferents mediate mechanical and chemical reflexes, which result in bradycardia and hypotension. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the changes that occur in ventricular mechanoreflexes and chemoreflexes in a conscious canine model of chronic heart failure. Dogs were instrumented for the measurement of left ventricular pressure, left atrial pressure… CONTINUE READING
