The Water and Electrolyte Content of the Tissues in Hypertension
An analysis of the water and electrolyte content of various tissues of rats rendered hypertensive by a period of choline deficiency at the time of weaning indicates that no alterations are induced by this procedure. It is concluded that the hypertensive process, per se, is not necessarily accompanied by changes in the water and electrolyte content of tissues; where such changes are observed, they are probably secondary to parenchymal renal changes.
