The pressor dose of infused angiotensin II was determined before and after rapid volume expansion with 800 to 1075 ml of high-hematocrit blood. There was no remarkable change in sensitivity to infused angiotensin demonstrated except in two in-stances in which transient volume overload developed. The data support the hypothesis that increased angiotensin sensitivity observed in patients with pregnancy-induced hypertension is the consequence of increased vascular responsivity.
