Stages of Salt Exchange in Essential Hypertension
The relation of sodium to hypertension remains one of the most fascinating problems in medicine. The results accumulated over a five-year period of study of this relationship are presented in the paper which follows. In these investigations the appetite for salt and the output of sodium under a variety of loading conditions have been correlated with cardiac and renal function and compared with the patterns found in experimental corticoid and renal hypertensions.
