FIGURE 1.1

Graded increases in renal nerve stimulation result in graded increases in renin secretion rate (circles), graded decreases in urinary sodium excretion (squares), and graded decreases in renal blood flow. Data are depicted as percent of maximal response to stimulation to facilitate comparison between the stimulation frequencies required to alter the various parameters. The stimulation frequencies required to elicit an increase in renin secretion rate are less than those required to decrease urinary sodium excretion which in turn are less than those required to decrease renal blood flow [modified from DiBona and Esler [53]].
