Eduardo Moacyr Krieger, Brazilian physiologist (Cerro Largo, Rio Grande do Sul 06 June 1928 –

Authored 233 papers


World famous for his studies on experimental hypertension

Performed known studies about pressoreceptors adaptation in hypertension and hypotension

Pioneer on utilization of rat as a model for studies regarding regulation of blood pressure at sleep and exercises (1960s)

Described a sino-aortic baroreceptor denervation method worldwide used

Neurogenic hypertension in the rat. Circulation Research 15:511-21, 1964

Demonstrated that the baroreceptors are reset to operate at higher blood pressure levels in hypertension and that a complete resetting occurs when the increase in the pressure threshold equals the increase in blood pressure

Arterial baroreceptor resetting in hypertension. Clin. Exp. Pharmacol. Physiol. Suppl. 15:3-17, 1989
