Baroceptor Function in Chronic Renal Hypertension
The results of these experiments indicate that the carotid and aortic baroceptor mechanisms are reset to the hypertensive pressure levels of animals with chronic perinephritic hypertension. Thus, seemingly, the buffer reflexes tend to maintain, rather than prevent, the chronic phase of renal hypertension and are, presumably, an important component in the mechanism of chronic renal hypertension.
