Abstract

The problem of cardiovascular reflexes in hypertension poses several questions. The first is whether alterations in cardiovascular reflexes can initiate a persistent increase in arterial pressure. Another is whether it is an alteration in depressor or in pressor reflexes that matters in hypertension. Other questions concern the type and nature of the reflex alterations that actually occur in hypertension and the place of resetting of baroreflexes in the sequence of physiologic events leading to increased blood pressure.
