Proximal and distal vascular compliance was measured by pulse-contour-analysis to evaluate the response to nitroprusside (NP) in normotensive (NTN) and hypertensive (HTN) dogs. In 6 dogs made HTN by kidney wrap and contralateral nephrectomy, studies were performed in the presurgical NTN state and at week 14 post surgery (HTN). Resistance (R) was determined from measured mean arterial pressure (MAP) and cardiac output (CO), obtained via thermodilution.
