Abstract:

Changes in cardiac output and peripheral resistance, and changes in the venous tone following bleeding and transfusion, and their correlation with the cardiac and sino-aortic receptor drive were studied. Additional studies were made of cardio-acceleratory sympathetic afferent pathways, physiology of Arterio-VenousA-V shunts, including the mechanism underlying cardiovascular adjustment in A-V shunts, and cardiovascular receptors discharge in A-V shunts. Also studied were the response of vagal afferents in shock and fainting, vagal andor non-vagal pathways concerned with sympathetic outflow to the spleen and kidneys, and mechanisms of natriuresis produced by instillation of sodium into the third ventricle.
