Effects of acid sensing ion channels blockade on the exercise pressor reflex following ischemia-reperfusion stress in healthy individuals

The purpose of this voluntary research study is to test if the drug amiloride can decrease blood pressure during exercise.

This project includes 3 visits to the research lab. Each visit last approximately 3.5-4 hours (~11-12 hours altogether). In each visit, you will be asked to perform foot exercise before and after a blood pressure cuff on your leg was inflated. You will also be asked to take pills prior to visit 2 and 3. One of these pills will be a drug called amiloride (10mg), which was traditionally used to lower blood pressure. The other pill will be a placebo (no active medication).

You will receive $25 per hour for your participation in this research study
