Whether intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) infusion of atrial natriuretic peptide (human-ANP, 1-28) 25 pmol min-1 influences the tolerance to blood loss and haemorrhage induced cardiovascular, vasopressin and renin responses were studied in five conscious sheep. The i.c.v. infusion was started 60 min prior to a slow (0.7 ml kg-1 min-1) venous haemorrhage, was run concurrently with bleeding, and for 90 min thereafter. Venous blood was removed until the mean systemic arterial pressure suddenly fell to about 50 mmHg. There were no statistically significant differences in either the bleeding volume necessary to induce the sudden decrease in blood pressure, or in cardiovascular parameters measured by venous heart thermodilution catheterization, compared with control experiments with i.c.v. infusion of artificial CSF. The plasma protein and vasopressin concentrations and renin activity were unaffected by the i.c.v. infusion of ANP as were the changes in these parameters occurring during the subsequent haemorrhage. The same negative findings were obtained with a three times higher dose of ANP(1-28) (75 pmol min-1), tested in three of the animals. Thus the i.c.v. infusion of ANP(1-28), in amounts expected to elevate the CSF concentration far above basal levels does apparently not influence normal blood pressure regulation or alter haemodynamic, vasopressin and renin responses to haemorrhage in conscious sheep.
