The release of aldosterone stimulates the retention of salt and water by the kidney, further increasing circulating volume, which may compound the problem of increased preload. Higher centers in the brain are also sensitive to a fall in cardiac output, via highand lowpressure baroreceptors which stimulate activation of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). The production of norepinephrine (noradrenaline) is increased, producing both inotropic (strength of contraction) and chronotropic (frequency of contraction) effects on the heart in an attempt to compensate for the reduced cardiac output.
