Water Immersion Induced Atrial Natriuretic Peptide (ANP) Secretion in Heart Transplant Patients
This paper aimed to study the intactness of ANP secretion in heart transplant patients and its relationship to renin (PRA), aldosterone (Ald) and vasopressin (AVP) secretion. ANP secretion was stimulated by central hypervolemia induced by head out water immersion (WI).
