What is carotid baroreflexes?
There are receptors on the lining of the carotid artery that sense a change in blood pressure. When they are stimulated, they can cause a drop in blood pressure/heart rate.
The carotid arteries bring oxygenated blood to the neck, face, head and brain. The arteries that carry flood to the structures of the head are the carotid arteries. The common carotid arteries split to form the internal and external carotid artery. The external carotid supplies blood to most of the facial and scalp structures, while the internal carotid enters the skull and supplies blood to the brain via the middle cerebral arteries.
