Figure 1

Atrial natriuretic peptide concentrations. Atrial natriuretic peptide concentrations before (pre) and after (post) volume loading (VL, n =9) or acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH, n =9) with 6% hydroxyethyl starch 130/0.4. To account for hemodilution, individual atrial natriuretic peptide concentrations were normalized to the individual albumin concentrations. Data are given as mean ± SEM. *P <0.05 (significantly different from pre).
