Six healthy male subjects received a constant infusion of norepinephrine bitartrate at a concentration of 2 µg/min of the base that was then increased to 4 µg/min, 8 µg/min, 15 µg/min, and 20 µg/min. Each infusion period lasted 4 minutes. The blood pressure and electrocardiogram were determined at 2 and 4 minute intervals. The subjects then received 200 mg of guanethidine by mouth on the first day and 100 mg guanethidine on each of the 2 following days. The infusion of norepinephrine was repeated on the fourth day.
The preguanethidine infusion of norepinephrine elicited in all subjects a rise in
