Engelke KA, Shea JD, Doerr DF, Convertino VA. Autonomic functions and orthostatic responses 24 h after acute intense exercise in paraplegic subjects. Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 266: R1189–R1196, 1994. http://ajpregu.physiology.org/cgi/reprint/266/4/R1189.
The following statements are presented in the introduction on page R1189: “We recently reported stable blood pressure during head-up tilt 24 h after maximal exercise was associated with an increased sensitivity of the carotid-cardiac baroreflex (11). However, increased gain of this vagally-mediated cardiac reflex response could not fully explain the elimination of orthostatic hypotension observed in the post-exercise condition. Consequently, we now report integrated arterial and cardiopulmonary baroreflex responses as well as heart rate, blood pressure, forearm vascular resistance, leg compliance, and vasoactive hormones during 70° head-up tilt (HUT) in 10 paraplegic subjects 24 h after a bout of dynamic arm exercise.”
The data presented in this paper and the cited paper (Ref. 11; Engelke KA, Shea JD, Doerr DF, Convertino VA. Enhanced carotid-cardiac baroreflex response and elimination of orthostatic hypotension 24 hours after acute exercise in paraplegics. Paraplegia 30: 872–879, 1992) were collected from the same 10 subjects. The authors regret that this fact was not made explicitly clear in the paper published in the American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology.
