Hemodynamics of dexamethasone-induced hypertension in the rat
Although dexamethasone (DEX) is known to cause hypertension in humans and in animals, the hemodynamic characteristics of DEX-induced hypertension (DEX-HT) in the rat remain unclear. This study evaluated central and regional hemodynamics, and the role of total peripheral resistance (TPR) using a vasodilator minoxidil. Rats were divided into four groups, namely saline (n=20), DEX (n=21), minoxidil+saline (n=10) and minoxidil+DEX (n=10). Tail-cuff systolic blood pressure was recorded every second...[Show more]
