Effector systems are activated resulting in stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system and the RAAS, as well as the nonosmotic release of AVP. Plasma concentrations of renin, aldosterone, AVP, and norepinephrine are increased. The net effect is renal salt and water retention so as to compensate for arterial underfilling.
