What has become clear in recent years is that the endocrine profile also undergoes characteristic changes as the patient lapses into sustained multiple organ dysfunction (Fig.

As discussed previously, global increases in cytoplasmic Ca2+ cause vasoconstriction, but spatially restricted increases in cytosolic Ca2+ may cause vasodilation. Release of Ca2+ by the ryanodine receptor in SR causes a localized area of very high Ca2+ concentration that activates BKCa2+ channels. The opening of these channels (Fig. 7) hyperpolarizes the cell membrane, thereby closing voltage-gated Ca2+ channels and relaxing the cell. In this manner, the constrictor action of several vasoconstrictors is buffered.
