Control of plasma renin activity in heat-stressed baboons on varied salt intake

Journal of Applied Physiology 62(4): 1531-1537

Control of plasma renin activity in heat-stressed baboons on varied salt intake

The characteristics and control of the increase in plasma renin activity (PRA) during environmental heating (EH) were estimated in 12 unanaesthetized, chronically catheterized baboons. Each EH experiment consisted of a 0.5- to 4-h exposure to an ambient temperature of 39 degrees to 44 degrees C until core temperature (Tc) reached 39.5 degrees to 40.0 degrees.
