Abstract

A variety of different techniques have been used for the assessment of the blood pressure response to changes in salt and water balance in humans. These have generally been found to be reproducible and to yield congruent results. This review surveys the characteristics of subjects identified as salt sensitive and salt resistant by different investigators from demographic and physiological perspectives.
