Carotid sinus reflex interactions were studied in 10 dogs anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium. The right and left carotid sinus regions were isolated and perfused at controlled pressures. Pressure in the right and left carotid sinuses were independently varied, and the resulting steady-state reflex changes in arterial pressure, heart rate, respiratory frequency, tidal volume, and total ventilation were measured. Reflex changes when carotid sinus pressure was changed on one side were strongly influenced by pressure in the contralateral carotid sinus (P less than 0.05). Right carotid sinus gain was found to be 0.628 +/- 0.058 at a left carotid sinus pressure of 50 mmHg and 0.148 +/- 0.027 when left carotid sinus pressure was 200 mmHg. Similar results were found for left carotid sinus gain. Suppression was also found for heart rate, respiratory rate, tidal volume, and total ventilation. The hypothesis that rapid resetting of one carotid sinus baroreflex might influence responses from the other ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Aortic depressor nerve stimulation does not impede the dynamic characteristics of the carotid sinus baroreflex in normotensive or spontaneously hypertensive rats. AU - Kawada, Toru. AU - Turner, Michael J.. AU - Shimizu, Shuji. AU - Fukumitsu, Masafumi. AU - Kamiya, Atsunori. AU - Sugimachi, Masaru. PY - 2017/5/30. Y1 - 2017/5/30. N2 - Recent clinical trials in patients with drug-resistant hypertension indicate that electrical activation of the carotid sinus baroreflex (baroreflex activation therapy) can reduce arterial pressure (AP) for more than a year. To examine whether the electrical stimulation from one baroreflex system impedes normal short-term AP regulation via another unstimulated baroreflex system, we electrically stimulated the left aortic depressor nerve (ADN) while estimating the dynamic characteristics of the carotid sinus baroreflex in anesthetized normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY, n=8) rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR, n=7). Isolated carotid sinus ...

The carotid sinus baroreceptor reflex was studied in 11 normotensive subjects, using a variable pressure neck chamber and correcting for imperfect pressure transmission to the carotid sinus. Decreased carotid baroreceptor stimulation caused a sustaineded rise in arterial pressure, and increased carotid baroreceptor stimulation caused a sustain fall. The responses were in linear relation to the stimulus, and, after reaching the steady state, greater for the reduced than for the increased baroreceptor stimulation. Thus the carotid sinus baroreceptor reflex of the normotensive man is an effective antihypotensive and antihypertensive feedback system, though the former function may have more sensitivity. The increased and decreased baroreceptor stimulation by the neck chamber also caused bradycardia and tachycardia which were modest in magnitude and often transient. In eight subjects the reflex changes in heart rate induced by the neck chamber were compared with those induced by altering transmural ...
In human anatomy, the carotid sinus is a dilated area at the base of the internal carotid artery just superior to the bifurcation of the internal carotid and external carotid at the level of the superior border of thyroid cartilage. The carotid sinus extends from the bifurcation to the "true" internal carotid artery. The carotid sinus is sensitive to pressure changes in the arterial blood at this level. It is the major baroreception site in humans and most mammals. The carotid sinus is the reflex area of the carotid artery, consisting of various nerve receptors for baroregulation (pressure regulation of the body in sync to external conditions). The carotid sinus contains numerous baroreceptors which function as a "sampling area" for many homeostatic mechanisms for maintaining blood pressure. The carotid sinus baroreceptors are innervated by the sinus nerve of Hering, which is a branch of cranial nerve IX (glossopharyngeal nerve). The glossopharyngeal nerve synapses in the nucleus tractus ...
The major new finding obtained from conscious rats was the clear-cut demonstration that chemoreceptors, as well as baroreceptors, were transiently activated during combined electric stimulation of the carotid sinus and the carotid sinus nerve in conscious rats. The results have shown that when the carotid bifurcation was intact (ie, in the CONT group), combined electric stimulation of the carotid sinus and the carotid sinus nerve elicited a significant hypotensive response. This finding is in line with results obtained in dogs21,22 and drug-resistant hypertensive patients.1,2 Nevertheless, unlike the results seen in dogs23 and drug-resistant hypertensive patients,4 HR did not significantly decrease in intact conscious rats (the CONT group).. It is of interest to note that bilateral carotid body denervation (as in the CHEMO-X group) hampered the hemodynamic influences of the carotid chemoreceptors during combined electric stimulation of the carotid sinus and the carotid sinus nerve in conscious ...
Objective: To determine the frequency, age distribution and clinical presentation of carotid sinus hypersensitivity (CSH) among 373 patients (age range 15-92 years) referred to two autonomic referral centres during a 10-year period.. Methods: Carotid sinus massage (CSM) was performed both supine and during 60° head-up tilt. Beat-to-beat blood pressure, heart rate and a three-lead electrocardiography were recorded continuously. CSH was classified as cardioinhibitory (asystole ⩾3 s), vasodepressor (systolic blood pressure fall ⩾50 mm Hg) or mixed. All patients additionally underwent autonomic screening tests for orthostatic hypotension and autonomic failure.. Results: CSH was observed in 13.7% of all patients. The diagnostic yield of CSM was nil in patients aged ,50 years (n = 65), 2.4% in those aged 50-59 years (n = 82), 9.1% in those aged 60-69 years (n = 77), 20.7% in those aged 70-79 years (n = 92) and reached 40.4% in those ,80 years (n = 57). Syncope was the leading clinical symptom in ...
Neurological complications following carotid sinus massage for diagnosis of the carotid sinus syndrome are uncommon and usually transient. Contraindications to carotid sinus massage should be respected and the standardized technique used.
The goal of this study was to determine whether nitric oxide (NO) and the NO donor, S-nitrosocysteine (cysNO), modulate the activity of carotid sinus baroreceptors. Baroreceptor activity was recorded from the vascularly isolated carotid sinus in anesthetized rabbits. Baroreceptor activity decreased in a dose-dependent manner after injection of either NO or cysNO as constant pressure was maintained, and activity recovered spontaneously over time, within seconds to minutes. The baroreceptor pressure-activity relation was shifted significantly to the right by cysNO, with a profound suppression of activity at high pressure. Baroreceptor activity at 160 mm Hg averaged 76 +/- 8%, 60 +/- 6%, and 36 +/- 5% of the control maximum during exposure to 10(-4), 2 to 3 x 10(-4), and 10(-3) mol/L cysNO, respectively. The inhibition of activity by the L and D isomers of cysNO was equivalent and was blocked by reduced hemoglobin, suggesting that the effect was mediated by NO. The suppression of baroreceptor activity by
Introduction: White matter hyperintensities (WMH) on MRI are common in older people and are associated with cognitive impairment, falls and depression. They are believed to represent cerebrovascular small vessel disease but as frank infarction is not always seen it is suggested that WMH represent damage resulting from hypoperfusion. Carotid sinus hypersensitivity (CSH) is an exaggerated fall in blood pressure (BP) or heart rate (HR) in response to stimulation of the carotid sinus. It is defined as a ≥50 mmHg drop in systolic BP & / or ≥3 second asystole in response to carotid sinus massage (CSM). CSH, is often associated with syncope & presyncope, thought to indicate cerebral hypoperfusion.. Aim: To examine, over a ten year follow-up, if CSH is associated with WMH volume.. Method: In 2002, 274 people age ≥65 underwent CSM. BP & HR response were recorded using beat to beat monitoring. Symptoms suggestive of cerebral hypoperfusion e.g. syncope or presyncope were recorded. In 2012, 53 of ...

1. Carotid baroreceptor manipulation (neckchamber technique) and passive head-up tilting were used in ten patients with renovascular hypertension and in five subjects with essential hypertension under diuretic treatment to study reflex control of renin secretion" at high basal-renin production rates.. 2. Reflex effects of carotid baroreceptor manipulation on renin secretion were only minor. During baroreceptor deactivation there was a moderate increase in mean arterial pressure, but an inconsistent change in the renal venous-arterial difference in plasma renin activity (PRA).. 3. During baroreceptor stimulation there was a modest fall in mean arterial pressure and a marked rise in the renal venous-arterial difference in PRA. This was opposite to the fall which might have been predicted as a result of the sympathetic depressor influence of the baroreceptor stimulus. Conversely, tilting increased the venous-arterial PRA difference by about 200%.. 4. It is concluded that when renin production rate ...
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of carotid sinus and cardiopulmonary mechanoreceptors in the reflex control of adrenal medullary catecholamine secretion. Afferent input from carotid sinus and cardiopulmonary mechanoreceptors was decreased by carotid occlusion or cervical vagal cold block, respectively. Increases in arterial pressure were significantly greater when either intervention was tested in the presence of the other, with the role of the carotid sinus baroreflex being dominant. Neither carotid occlusion nor vagal cold block resulted in a significant increase in plasma epinephrine or norepinephrine concentrations. However, carotid occlusion during vagal block caused a significant increase in plasma epinephrine (+87%) and norepinephrine concentrations (+128%). Likewise, vagal block during carotid occlusion increased plasma epinephrine (+82%) and norepinephrine concentrations (+73%). Similar experiments performed in a group of chemically sympathectomized animals ...
The goal of the present study was to determine whether oxygen-derived free radicals contribute to baroreceptor dysfunction in atherosclerosis. Baroreceptor activity was measured from the carotid sinus nerve during pressure ramps in isolated carotid sinuses of anesthetized rabbits. Rabbits fed a 0.5% to 1.0% cholesterol diet for 7.9 +/- 0.4 months (mean +/- SE; range, 5.5 to 10) developed atherosclerotic lesions in the carotid sinuses. Maximum baroreceptor activity measured at 140 mm Hg and the slope of the pressure-activity curve were reduced in atherosclerotic (n = 15) compared with normal (n = 13) rabbits (425 +/- 34 versus 721 +/- 30 spikes per second and 6.2 +/- 0.6 versus 10.8 +/- 0.8 spikes per second per mm Hg, respectively, P | .05). The level of activity was inversely related to plasma cholesterol concentration (r = .86, P | .001) and total cholesterol load (plasma concentration x duration of diet, r = .92). Mean arterial pressure was normal in both groups. Exposure of the carotid sinus to the
Title:The Future of Interventional Management of Hypertension: Threats and Opportunities. VOLUME: 12 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Alexandros Briasoulis and George Bakris. Affiliation:5841 S. Maryland Ave MC 1027, Chicago, IL 60637, USA.. Keywords:Resistant hypertension, baroreflex activation therapy, renal sympathetic denervation.. Abstract:In about 48% hypertensive patients in the United States, blood pressure remains higher than accepted treatment targets despite broad availability of effective pharmaceutical agents. Of these 48%, recent estimates define about 10-11% have treatment-resistant hypertension (TR-HTN). Compensatory changes in sympathetic nervous system function are an important component of HTN. Recent technical advances targeting the sympathetic activity of the carotid sinuses (Baroreflex Activation Therapy-BAT) and the renal sympathetic nerves (Renal Denervation Therapy-RDT) have renewed interest in invasive therapy for the treatment of drug-resistant hypertension. Encouraging results ...
The use of baroreflex stimulation devices (also known as baroreflex activation therapy) is a potential alternative treatment for resistant hypertension and heart failure. Both hypertension and heart failure are relatively common conditions and are initially treated with medications and lifestyle changes. A substantial portion of patients are unresponsive to conventional therapy and treating these patients is often challenging and can lead to high costs and adverse effects. As a result, there is a large unmet need for additional treatments.. New treatment options are being explored to treat drug-resistant hypertension. One such approach is the electrical activation of the carotid sinus baroreflex. Baroreceptors are pressure sensors contained within the walls of the carotid arteries. They are part of the autonomic nervous system that regulates basic physiologic functions such as heart rate and blood pressure (BP). When these receptors are stretched, as occurs with increases in BP, the baroreflex ...
The hypothesis that we have formulated to explain the relationship between denervation and abnormal response to carotid sinus massage has been extensively described6 and is based on the theory of central gating.14 Briefly, chronic denervation of the muscle leaves the central nervous system without any moment-to-moment information about the contractile state of the muscle. On the other hand, the midbrain centers receive "normal" information from the stretch receptors of the carotid sinus. In a normal individual, carotid sinus massage, because of the anatomic position of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, results in a pressure on both the muscle and the sinus, and these signals are integrated by the centers as an "external" stretching of the sinus. In the case of proprioceptive defect of the muscle, the massage of the sinus is considered as a stretching of the sinus only and is integrated by the centers as an abrupt increase in blood pressure, resulting through the baroreflex pathways in an ...
An implantable device (20) uses the carotid baroreflex in order to control systemic blood pressure. The implant includes sampling and pulse stimulation electrodes (44) preferably located on the carotid sinus nerve branch of the glossopharyngeal nerve, adjacent and distal to the carotid sinus baroreceptors. The stimulators have an external control unit, which communicates with the implant for determining appropriate operational parameters, and for retrieving telemetry information from the devices data bank. Typically two internal devices are implanted, one at each side of the patients neck.

There are four main sinus cavities in the body. They are located on either side of the nose, behind and in-between the eyes, and in the forehead. Each sinus cavity has an opening into the nose for the exchange of air and mucous. When the cavities get filled with mucous it creates a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.. Some of the most common sinus pressure symptoms include severe nasal congestion and yellowish green discharge which is thick because it contains pus. Pain in the teeth is also very normal. This pain increases when you bend over. Symptoms may vary however, depending on the sinuses involved.. Sinus pressure symptoms normally occur for about ten days and they may carry on for a longer period if a cold or flu occurs. They normally worsen after five to seven days. In some cases fever also occurs. Fever is more common in children than in adults therefore it is not a very reliable way of diagnosing sinus pressure.. Far more severe sinus pressure symptoms are terrible headaches, pain or ...
The present experiments were designed to measure the direct effects of propranolol on carotid sinus pressoreceptor nerve activity in the semi-isolated, superfused sinus of the cat. Propranolol (5 microgram/ml) significantly enhanced carotid sinus nerve activity at perfusion pressures of 100, 150 and 250 mm Hg. The enhancement was due primarily to the recruitment of new fibers. In similar preparations, perfused at constant flow, propranolol increased sinus resistance in parallel with the increase in sinus discharge. These effects were rapidly dissipated by rinsing with drug-free perfusion solution. The evidence suggests that propranolol may produce a change in either the elastic or autoregulatory modalities of sinus smooth muscle. This may produce a functional "resetting" of the sinus and provide a mechanism to explain the antihypertensive effect of propranolol. ...

Why is the Dim Mak effective? The carotid sinus is a special sensory organ regulating the pressure of blood flow to the brain. The carotid sinus is located over internal and external carotid arteries. When blood pressure is too high, the carotid sinus signals the vasomotor center of the brain to decrease the blood pressure by dilating peripheral blood vessels and slowing down heart rate. Thats why it can result in a loss of consciousness along with a build up of plaques in the carotid arteries. By striking this area, small tears can result in the carotid arteries and blood clots. Death can occur by striking this area. Thats why doctors look for a pulse because the carotid artery is a major indicator of life. A very helpful resource in understanding more on Dim Mak is Dr. Michael Kellys (a sports medical doctor) book "Death Touch: The Science of Dim Mak (1). In this book, he explains that stimulating a nerve through a Dim Mak point connected to an internal organ can cause damage ...

The results from these studies demonstrate that afferent input from peripheral chemoreceptors and mechanoreceptors contributes little to the systemic hemodynamic and sympathetic responses after term delivery by cesarean section. Furthermore, birth-related increases in circulating norepinephrine but not epinephrine appear dependent on afferent input from the carotid sinus or aortic depressor nerves, which carry both chemo- and baroreceptor afferents from the carotid sinus and aortic arch, respectively. Finally, we observed that vagal afferent activity regulates basal fetal plasma ANG II levels and exerts a tonic inhibitory effect on AVP release after birth.. Both peripheral chemoreceptors and baroreceptors have been shown to be functional during fetal life. The fetal cardiovascular response to acute hypoxemia is well described, consisting of a decrease in heart rate and increase in peripheral vascular resistance (7). Carotid denervation abolishes these responses to hypoxemia and NaCN, a chemical ...

Why do you have a Spine?. You have a spine to connect the upper and lower portions of your body together. Through your spine runs your spinal cord which is the major thoroughfare between your brain and the rest of your body. Your spine is one of the most important aspects of your whole body.. What does your spine look like?. Your spine is made up of three main curves and the sacrum. There are twenty four vertebrae; 7 cervical, 12 thoracic, and 5 lumbar. The cervical are curved in a what is called a lordotic curve, the thoracic are curved the opposite direction or, kyphotic, and the lumbar are curved like the cervical, in a lordotic curve. A kyphotic curve is the primary curve and the lordotic curve is a secondary, or functional curve. A functional curve is one that does not show up until movement occurs.. The curves of your spine not only act as shock absorbers between your head and tail, but allow the head to be over your pelvis. Your spine allows you to stand upright and see the horizon! The ...
Alas! All is not a bed of roses in the world of cone beam imaging. With the improved technologies come increased responsibilities. A dentist might use his cone beam image for the reasons specific to his specialty, such as assessment for the adequacy of bone for implant placement, but if he or she does not recognize abnormal anatomical structures, he or she could be held legally responsible if the patient suffers future injuries relating to that missed observation. For example, if an adenocarcinoma has caused visible distortion or disintegration of any bony structure seen in the scan, the dentist is responsible for notifying the patient and referring the patient to an appropriate specialist, or baring that, for enlisting the help of a board certified radiologist to assess the images.. This also means that if the image includes the entire sinus region, the dentist is responsible for recognizing abnormalities in the sinus, even though this lies outside of his area of expertise and he has no ...

AU - Zeballos, Guillermo A.. AU - Hintze, Thomas H.. PY - 1991/6. Y1 - 1991/6. N2 - Carotid baroreceptor function, the compliance of the carotid sinus wall, and the structure of the carotid artery were examined in dogs with elevated plasma norepinephrine (2, 000-4, 000 pg/ml) for 28 days. The dogs with high nonepinephrine were normotensive (100±4.0 versus 98±4.0 mm Hg; p,0.05) with bradycardia (65 ±4.0 versus 87 ±16 beats/m in; p,0.05) compared with normal dogs in the conscious state. However, after pentobarbital anesthesia blood pressure was significantly higher in dogs with chronic norepinephrine infusion (165±6 mm Hg) compared with normal dogs (132±6 mm Hg). To assess baroreceptor sensitivity, multiunit carotid baroreceptor activity was recorded from the right carotid sinus nerve, and the ...
Clinical trials on carotid receptor stimulation by an implantable device showed a significant reduction in both office systolic (22 or 34 mmHg) and diastolic (18 or 20 mmHg) blood pressure, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure (14/9 mmHg), and heart rate (12 bpm), which was evident from study onset and was maintained at follow-up. Available data suggest a beneficial effect of carotid baroreceptor stimulation on the reversal of left ventricular hypertrophy and cardiac structure and function, with attenuated mitral A-valve velocity and reduced left atrial dimensions; also carotid baropacing does not impair the renal function of patients with resistant hypertension, even during prolonged follow-up periods (13-18).. ...
Arterial baroreceptors are mechanical sensors that detect blood pressure changes. It has long been suggested that the two arterial baroreceptors, aortic and carotid baroreceptors, have different pressure sensitivities. However, there is no consensus as to which of the arterial baroreceptors are more sensitive to changes in blood pressure. In the present study, we employed independent methods to compare the pressure sensitivity of the two arterial baroreceptors. Firstly, pressure-activated action potential firing was measured by whole-cell current clamp with a high-speed pressure clamp system in primary cultured baroreceptor neurons. The results show that aortic depressor neurons possessed a higher percentage of mechano-sensitive neurons. Furthermore, aortic baroreceptor neurons show a lower pressure threshold than that of carotid baroreceptor neurons. Secondly, uniaxial stretching of baroreceptor neurons, that mimics the forces exerted on blood vessels, elicited a larger increase in intracellular Ca2+
1. The carotid baroreceptors were stimulated for 2 min by neck suction at −30 and −60 mmHg in 19 normotensive subjects and 12 patients with moderate essential hypertension.. 2. Blood pressure was measured with a mercury sphygmomanometer and heart rate was derived from beat-to-beat analysis of the electrocardiogram. Blood flow was measured simultaneously at calf and finger with venous occlusion plethysmography and the vascular resistance was calculated.. 3. During neck suction at − 30 and − 60 mmHg there was a significant decrease in arterial blood pressure and heart rate. There was a transient vasodilatation of the calf blood vessels, while there was a sustained vasoconstriction of the finger blood vessels. These results were qualitatively similar in both groups; however, there were quantitative differences.. 4. These experiments show that there is a selective autonomic control of the different peripheral vascular beds by the carotid baroreceptors in both normotension and mild essential ...
1. Tachyphylaxis occurs when renin is repeatedly injected into dogs and cats regardless of whether they are normal, anesthetized, pithed, hepatectomized, suprarenalectomized, nephrectomized, or eviscerated.. 2. The pressor response to renin in brief experiments is independent of the height of the arterial pressure or the presence of the suprarenals. Evisceration and large doses of ergotamine reduce the response. It is largely uninfluenced by pithing, intracisternal injection of renin, cocaine, strychnine, caffeine, and infusion of sodium bicarbonate or hydrochloric acid. It may be slightly increased by large blood transfusions or hepatectomy but the result is short lived.. 3. There is no parallelism between the pressor responses to carotid sinus stimulation, adrenine, and tyramine on the one hand and renin on the other.. 4. Section of the brain may be followed by depressor responses to renin.. 5. Intracisternal injection of renin elicits no significant rise in blood pressure or other circulatory ...

Adrenergic blocking action has been measured in a series of eighteen dibenzazepine derivatives. Maximal action was found in the allyl dibenzazepine derivative, Ro 2-3248. Compounds with side-chains longer than propyl were inactive. The quaternary salts were inactive.. The allyl dibenzazepine derivative, Ro 2-3248, is a strong, short-acting adrenergic blocking agent which causes a prolonged fall of blood pressure. It is orally active. Ro 2-3248 blocked the stimulatory action of epinephrine on blood pressure, nictitating membrane and isolated seminal vesicles. It blocked the stimulatory effects of arterenol. It also blocked the effects of sympathetic nerve stimulation on the nictitating membrane and the carotid sinus reflex. It did not block the inhibitory actions of epinephrine on blood pressure, isolated tracheal rings and isolated intestine or the inhibitory action of isopropylarterenol on blood pressure. The compound has a relatively low toxicity.. ...
Multidisciplinary assessment of the reason for the fall will reduce the risk of further fractures, and the components of such assessments are well described.11 12 Nearly all patients with hip fracture meet the criteria for such an assessment, which should be performed routinely as part of inpatient rehabilitation care (box 4). A medical cause for the fall should be sought; specifically, hypotension, postural hypotension, arrhythmia, vasovagal syncope, and carotid sinus hypersensitivity. Examination should include lying and standing blood pressure and a 12 lead electrocardiogram.. About 3% of hip fractures are related to localised bone weakness at the fracture site, secondary to tumour, bone cysts, or Pagets disease. More than half of the remaining patients have osteoporosis, and nearly all are osteopenic. Over the age of 80, a woman with normal bone mineral density for her age will have a T score of around - 2.5 (the diagnostic threshold for osteoporosis). Thus, assessment of bone density is ...

The carotid body is located at the bifurcation of the common carotid artery (C4) and consists of chemoreceptors, partially derived from neural crest cells, which are capable of detecting partial pressure of oxygen and pH.. The carotid sinus is also located at the bifurcation of the common carotid artery but is visible as a dilatation of the internal carotid artery. It consists of baroreceptors innervated by the sinus branch of the glossopharyngeal nerve which are capable of detecting changes in blood pressure. In addition, there are barorecptors in the aortic arch but these are innervated by the vagus nerve). The carotid sinus can be massaged in order to slow the heart rate.. ...
