Vascular functional changes. A, Noradrenaline mediated contraction of the thoracic aorta. B, Endothelium-dependent relaxation by acetylcholine of noradrenaline pre-contracted thoracic aorta. C, Endothelium-independent relaxation by sodium nitroprusside of noradrenaline pre-contracted thoracic aorta. D, Noradrenaline mediated contraction of the pulmonary artery. E, Endothelium-dependent relaxation by acetylcholine of noradrenaline pre-contracted pulmonary artery. F, Endothelium-independent relaxation by sodium nitroprusside of noradrenaline pre-contracted pulmonary artery. Data expressed as Mean ± SEM; n = 16 for all groups. *P < 0.05 PA vs HFHC, P < 0.05 CON vs HFHC + PA.
