Abstract

Summary

Venom of the scorpion, Ewing, caused hypertension, respiratory failure, and skeletal muscle stimulation in anesthetized animals. No significant action of the venom was found on isolated skeletal muscle preparations. Hypertension resulted in part from release of pressor substances from the adrenal gland, although neither direct action nor action mediated by vasopressor centers can be ruled out. Respiration and skeletal muscle stimulation followed a pattern which suggests an initial peripheral action followed by an action dependent on the central nervous system.
