    Abstract

    The adrenergic response to an episode of bradycardia and hypotension associated with atrial natriuretic factor and prostaglandin infusion in a healthy male subject is described. Noradrenaline levels did not change despite a profound fall in blood pressure. In contrast, there was an almost thirty-fold increase in adrenaline levels. This dissociated sympathoadrenal response suggests activation of the Bezold-Jarisch reflex.
