Neurological and humoral control of blood pressure.

Kirkman, E. and Sawdon, M. (2004) 'Neurological and humoral control of blood pressure.', Anaesthesia & intensive care medicine., 5 (6). pp. 179-183.


Systemic arterial blood pressure, flow and blood volume are closely regulated by a group of interrelated mechanisms. Perhaps the most important mechanism in the moment-to-moment control of arterial blood pressure is the arterial baroreceptor reflex. This reflex influences blood pressure by modifying a series of cardiovascular parameters: heart rate, cardiac stroke volume and peripheral vascular resistance. The key to understanding how the arterial baroreceptor reflex controls blood pressure is the interrelationship between these parameters.
