Clinical applications of the carotid sinus reflex

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The carotid sinus reflex, a cornerstone of cardiovascular physiology for half a century, is now being utilized in cardiovascular diagnosis and therapy. Electrical stimulation of the carotid sinus nerves is being employed to treat angina pectoris, recurrent supraventricular tachycardia, and essential hypertension. In addition, altered responsiveness of the baroreceptors in disease states may be valuable diagnostically and may provide further understanding of the pathophysiology of several circulatory disturbances.
