Recently, smaller increments in muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) in healthy women during graded head-up tilt (HUT) and a non-baroreflex cold pressor test are reported. As such, the hypothesis that gender difference in blood pressure control during HUT are related to important variations in MSNA discharge patterns is examined. Thus, the current analysis indicated that distinct gender difference exist in reflex cardiovascular control during HUT.
