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

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

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

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.
