The slower relaxation of the heart muscle prolongs the duration of diastole. The heart rate is therefore lower and as the stroke volume does not change, cardiac output decreases. 23 The distribution of flow to different organs changes with lower flow to the kidneys, liver, intestines and skin. Although there are fewer arterioles in skeletal muscle of hypertensive rats, flow in individual arterioles is higher than in controls and thus the total blood flow is only slightly lower than in controls.
