    Abstract

    Systemic infusions of aldosterone cause an acute increase in systemic vascular resistance (SVR) in healthy subjects. It is not clear whether this is due to a direct effect on the vasculature or the result of increased sympathetic tone. We investigated the short-term effects of locally infused aldosterone on the forearm resistance bed.
