The Sympathetic Nervous System and Hypertension: Pocketbook

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, Aug 11, 1997 - Medical - 80 pages
The central nervous system is particularly closely involved in the rapid alteration of blood pressure (almost always an increase) in response to various types of stress. The response of the system is extremely rapid and is achieved through the modulation of sympathetic vasoconstrictor tones. There are a number of ways to assess sympathetic function and to treat essential hypertension, and all explained in this 80-page pocketbook.
