Prolonged Beneficial Effects of Dobutamine in Refractory Heart Failure -- Case Histories
- Different responses to dobutamine in the presence of carvedilol or metoprolol in patients with chronic heart failure. Bolano, E.; Täng, M. Scharin; Hjalmarson, Å.; Waagstein, F.; Andersson, B. // Heart;Jun2003, Vol. 89 Issue 6, p621
Objective: To determine whether patients with congestive heart failure on different Î² adrenoreceptor blocking drugs have similar haemodynamic responses to dobutamine. Design: Single centre, single blind, randomised, two period crossover study comparing carvedilol with metoprolol CR/XL....
- Arrhythmias Associated with Intermittent Outpatient Dobutamine Infusion. David, Shukri; Zaks, Jeffrey M. // Angiology;Feb1986, Vol. 37 Issue 2, p86
The use of intermittent outpatient dobutamine infusion has recently been studied as an alternative therapy modality for patients with refractory congestive heart failure. We studied the arrhythmogenic effects of intermittent outpatient dobutamine infusion in two patients with NYHA class IV heart...
- Candesartan in CHF Patients with Normal LV Function. Barry, Henry // American Family Physician;1/1/2004, Vol. 69 Issue 1, p164
Examines the effects of candesartan in patients with congestive heart failure and preserved left-ventricular ejection fraction. Clinical questions on the case; Clinical setting; Discussion on the results of the study.
- Enhancement of Phentolamine by Nitrates in Patients with Congestive Heart Failure. Gould, Lawrence; Reddy, C. V. R.; Zen, Bujung; Singh, B. K. // Angiology;Sep1981, Vol. 32 Issue 9, p595
Phentolamine dilates the resistance bed and to a lesser degree the capacitance bed, while the nitrates have the opposite action. Therefore, in 7 patients with congestive heart failure due to congestive cardiomyopathy, hemodynamic measurements were made using a Swan Ganz thermodilution catheter...
