The system works by electrically activating the baroreceptors, the body's natural blood pressure sensors that regulate cardiovascular function. These baroreceptors are located on the carotid artery.
Atrial tachycardia
External pressure on the carotid bulb stimulates baroreceptors in the carotid sinus, increasing vagus nerve activity and sympathetic withdrawal. If vagal maneuvers fail to terminate the AVNRT, adenosine is usually the first agent used.
