The responses to sympathetic stimulation of fetal sheep adrenal-demedullated or sympathectomised by infusion of guanethidine sulphate have been studied. Sympathetic responses in such denervated or sympathectomised fetuses was studied by intravenous infusion of adrenaline or noradrenaline at about 0.4 micrograms/min per kg. This infusion increased plasma concentration 100-200 fold and there was no significant difference between the control fetuses and those in the vasrious treatment groups. Catecholamine infusions at these rates normally have little effect upon fetal blood gas and pH values, but in adrenal-demedullated fetuses adrenaline infusion drepressed fetal arterial PO2 by 4-6 mmHg (P less than 0...
