The hemodynamic effects of phentolamine were studied in 11 dogs with experimentally produced hemorrhagic shock. Phentolamine was infused intravenously at 0.3 mg per min. for an average duration of 15 min., and the average cardiac output increased from 0.924 to 1.51 liters per min., whereas the mean arterial pressure rose from 45 to 60 mm Hg. No arrhythmias or other untoward effects occurred during these procedures.

    Patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA) often have clinically significant postprandial hypotension (PPH). To elucidate the cause of insufficient cardiac preload augmentation that underlies PPH, we recorded calf venous capacitance (CVC) by strain-gauge plethysmography, in 17 MSA patients and...

    Monitoring of continuous blood pressure and cardiac output is important to prevent hypoperfusion and to guide fluid administration, but only few patients receive such monitoring due to the invasive nature of most of the methods presently available. Noninvasive blood pressure can be determined...

    Objective: During hypotension induced by tilt-table testing, low presyncopal blood pressure (BP) usually recovers within 1 min after tilt back. However, in some patients prolonged post faint hypotension (PPFH) is observed. We assessed the hemodynamics underlying PPFH in a retrospective study....

    ACTH and adrenocortical steroids have been known to raise blood pressure since their introduction into clinical practice. Our experimental studies in normal subjects show that ACTH reproducibly increases blood pressure in association with a rise in cardiac output, plasma and extracellular fluid...
