The Response to Catechol Amine Infusion During Salicylate-Induced Hypermetabolism in Man
The increase in oxygen consumption produced in man by salieylate administration is not associated with a rise in pulse rate or an increase in responsiveness to infusions of epinephrine or norepinephrine. It is suggested that the effects of thyroid hormone on the cardiovascular system are more dependent on the concentration of circulating thyroid hormone per se than on the concomitant increase in tissue oxygen consumption.
