November 04, 2022 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: W311, Orange County Convention Center‚ West Building

Session Description

This session examines recent advances in how the central nervous system regulates body fluid homeostasis and arterial pressure. Presentations also include the latest developments in our understanding of how fructose influences BP and how immune mechanisms play a role in the pathogenesis of hypertension during pregnancy.

Learning Objective(s)

  • List factors that prevent rapid dephosphorylation of the thiazide-sensitive NCC and its inactivation
  • Outline mechanisms by which the hypothalamus regulates sympathetic nerve activity in hypertension
  • Discuss the mechanisms by which fructose influences BP
  • Describe the role of immune mechanisms in hypertension during pregnancy

Learning Pathway(s)
