Circulatory Response to Pressor Agents in Phosphorous Depletion
Impaired function of myocardial muscle is a known feature of phosphorous depletion (PD) in man (1,2) and in experimental animals (3). Congestive heart failure has been described in patients, who were chronically phosphorous depleted secondary to ingestion of phosphorous binding agents (2). Furthermore, abnormalities of skeletal muscle function are common in PD (4). However, no information is available on smooth muscle function in PD. Specifically, control of blood pressure and the peripheral response to pressor agents has not been studied.
