Question Answer
Aortic arch receptortransmits via vagus nerve to solitary nucleus of medulla
responds only to ↑ BP
Carotid sinustransmits via glossopharyngeal nerve to solitary nucleus of medulla
responds to ↓ and ↑ in BP
Hypotension and baroreceptor mechanism↓ arterial pressure → ↓ stretch → ↓ afferent baroreceptor firing → ↑ efferent sympathetic firing and ↓ efferent parasympathetic stimulation → vasocontriction, ↑ HR, ↑ contractility, ↑ BP
Important in the response to severe hemorrhage
Carotid massage mechanism↑ pressure on carotid a → ↑ stretch → ↑ afferent baroreceptor firing →↓ HR
Peripheral chemoreceptorscarotid and aortic bodies - stimulated by ↓ PO2 (<60mmHg), ↑ PCO2, and ↓ pH of blood
Central chemoreceptorstimulated by changes in pH and PCO2 of brain interstitial fluid, which are influenced by arterial CO2.
Do not directly respond to PO2
