Abstract Split-half and test-retest reliabilities of heart-rate responses to a baroreceptor manipulation and an orthostatic maneuver were compared between subjects with either normal or elevated blood-pressure. Ten subjects showing elevated resting blood-pressure and 11 normotensive subjects participated in two experimental sessions, each including heart-rate recordings during baroreceptor manipulation and orthostatic challenge. Carotid baroreceptors were manipulated by applying the baroreceptor-specific phase-related external suction (PRES) technique. The orthostatic stimulation procedure (OSP) was a change of body position from lying to standing. Heart rate re...
