SNS Regulation: Increases rate of depolarization (slope) at SA node

NEpi binds β1 adrenergic receptors > Gs > cAMP > PKA > ↑ Na+ (funny) and Ca2+ (T- and L-type) permeability

PNS Regulation: Decrease rate of depolarization (slope) > hyperpolarization at SA node

Vagal Nerve > ACh binds M2 muscarinic receptors > G inhibitory > ↑ K+ permeability & ↓ T-type Ca + Na (funny) permeability
Image: ANS Regulation of the Heart > Chronotropy (SNS & PNS Regulation) > Heart Rate
SNS regulation: ↑ inotropy (contractility) and ↑ lusitropy (speed of relaxation)

Catecholamines binds β1 adrenergic receptors > Gs > cAMP > PKA > Phosphorylates LTCC & RyR (Ca induced Ca from SR) > ↑↑ Ca > ↑ Contractility ()

Catecholamines binds β1 adrenergic receptors > Gs > cAMP > PKA > Phosphorylates Phospholamban PLN > Removes inhibition of PLN on SERCA2a > SERCA pumps Ca back into SR > ↑ ventricular relaxation speed
SNS (α-AR) Vascular RegulationVasoconstriction - Increase vascular resistance - Increase arterial pressure Venoconstriction - Decrease venous compliance - Increase CBV/ VRSummary of ANS Innervation of CV SystemTest ya selfNeural Reflex Mechanisms in BP Control > Arterial Baroreceptor Reflex (high-pressure receptors) 1. What are they? 2. Location? 3. What do they sense? 4. What is their response?What are they? High-pressure receptors Location? Carotid sinus and aortic arch What do they sense? Arterial stretch (pressure) What is their response? Modulate ANS to maintain blood pressure ↑ BP = ↑ Firing Frequency ↓ BP = ↓ Firing FrequencyDescribe the transmission of the Arterial Baroreceptor signal through ANS regulatory pathwaysNow reverse everything and figure it outNeural Reflex Mechanisms in BP Control > Atrial Baroreceptor Reflex (low-pressure [volume] receptors)Locations 1. Vena Cava 2. Right Atrium 3. Pulmonary Artery Mechano/ Stretch Receptors - Respond to changes in blood volume ADH ↑ resorption Renin ↑ BPList the components of the Renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and explain how they are formed.Angiotensinogen (Renin)> Angiotensin I (Angiotensin-converting enzyme [ACE])> Angiotensin II > Angiotensin II Type 1 Receptor (AT1R)Describe the stimuli for RAS activation and the multiple roles that the RAS playsGOAL IS TO RAISE BLOOD PRESSURE Activation of RAS 1. Loss of blood volume 2. Drop in blood pressure 3. Decreased filtrate flow rate in glomerulus Ang II Roles 1. Vasoconstriction 2. Retention of Na/ H2O 3. Secretion of Aldosterone 4. Release of ADH 5. Stimulation of SNS 6. Stimulation of thirstExplain the effects and mechanisms of action of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) on blood pressure1. Hypothalamic Stimulation - Hyperosmolarity - ↓ Atrial Receptor Firing - Ang II - SNS stimulation 2. Signal sent to posterior pituitary to release vasopressin > ↑ blood volume and systemic vascular resistance > ↑ Arterial PressureAcute Local Control of Blood Flow to OrgansBlood flow through capillary bed when the precapillary sphincters are relaxed Blood flow bypasses the capillary bed when the precapillary sphincters are constricted MAP = CO * TPR Resistance to low is locally regulated by adjusting the radius of arteriolesAcute Metabolic Blood Flow ControlIncreased metabolism = Vasodilation Decreased metabolism = Vasoconstriction - Increased metabolism increases tissue blood flow - Reduced O2 increases tissue blood flowExamples of Acute Metabolic Blood Flow Control > Active HyperemiaIncreased blood flow due to increased tissue metabolismExamples of Acute Metabolic Blood Flow Control > Reactive Hyperemia- Build up of metabolic waste following ischemia - Buildup of metabolic waste leading to vasodilation/ increased flowAcute Autoregulation of Blood Flow & Net EffectAutoregulation: intrinsic ability of an organ to maintain a constant blood flow despite changes in perfusion pressure Perfusion pressure is the pressure flowing through an organ Net Effect: Maintenance of near constant blood flow for a particular metabolic levelMetabolic Theory of Autoregulation↑ Arterial Pressure > ↑ Blood Flow > ↑ O2 & Washout of tissue vasodilators > Vasoconstriction > Blood flow returns to normalMyogenic Theory of Autoregulation- Inherent to vascular smooth muscle - Vessel constricts in response to an increase in pressure (↑P = Q x ↑R) - Vessel dilates in response to a decrease in pressure (↓P = Q x ↓R)Acute Metabolic Blood Flow Control > Endothelial InfluencesVasodilators 1. Nitric Oxide (NO): Relaxation ↑ Flow > activates NO receptors > ↑ Ca > activation of cNOS > ↑ NO > ↑ cGMP > relaxation 2.
