- HOW VASODILATORS BACKFIRE (and when to expect it). de Toledo, Laura Worthington // RN;Jul82, Vol. 45 Issue 7, p41
Discusses the effects of vasodilators sodium nitroprusside and nitroglycerin on the systemic circulatory system and pulmonary circulation. Details on how vasodilators reduce the workload of the heart and lower myocardial oxygen consumption; Changes brought by vasodilators to the blood gas;...
- Reactivity of Arterial Vessels during Antiorthostasis and Systemic Hypotension. Balueva, T.; Sergeev, I. // Bulletin of Experimental Biology & Medicine;Mar2010, Vol. 149 Issue 3, p298
In experiments on rats, changes in blood pressure and cardiac output in response to antiorthostatic (head-down) tilt 15Â° and 45Â° were examined under conditions of decreased arterial tone induced by sodium nitroprusside. The decrease in initial systemic blood pressure to 90 mm Hg attenuated...
