1. The changes in plasma concentrations of immunoreactive vasopressin (iVP) and atrial natriuretic factor (iANF) in response to haemorrhage (10-30% blood volume) were measured in 10 anaesthetized rabbits before and after cardiac receptor denervation (vagal nerve section). Carotid sinus pressure was maintained constant (60 mmHg) to eliminate any changing input from carotid baroreceptors. 2. Haemorrhage increased iVP before and after vagal nerve section indicating that withdrawal of input from aortic baroreceptors may have contributed to the increase in iVP. 3. Section of the vagus nerves attenuated the iVP response to haemorrhage. 4. There was no correlation between release of iVP and iANF. 5. Haemorrhage decreased iAF before and after vagal nerve section. Section of the vagus nerves increased iANF. Plasma iANF was highly correlated with atrial pressure and mean arterial pressure suggesting iANF release was secondary to changes in cardiac haemodynamics.
