A response by the BARORECEPTORS to increased BLOOD PRESSURE. Increased pressure stretches BLOOD VESSELS which activates the baroreceptors in the vessel walls. The net response of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM is a reduction of central sympathetic outflow. This reduces blood pressure both by decreasing peripheral VASCULAR RESISTANCE and by lowering CARDIAC OUTPUT. Because the baroreceptors are tonically active, the baroreflex can compensate rapidly for both increases and decreases in blood pressure.

  • In this view, all pressures in the heart and circulatory system (for example, those measured in the large veins, in the cardiac chambers, and in the arteries) are derivatives of the force generated by the heart rather than independent variables that might have an influence on the heart's function and thus cardiac output. (
  • However, when the fistula was opened (causing increased preload as evidenced by high right atrial pressure [P RA ] values), cardiac output increased in proportion to heart rate changes. (
  • Venous return will also increase due to high cardiac output (point N to A). There is not net gain or loss of volume, therefore central venous pressure (right atrial pressure) remains constant (1 point on the x-axis). (
