    The article discusses a study which investigated the effects of phentolamine on proadrenomedullin NH2-terminal 20 peptide (PAMP) responses in the systemic and hindquarters vascular bed of the rat. Intravenous and intra-arterial injections of PAMP were administered to test for the effects of the...

    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...

    In 1969, our group first reported that the intravenous administration of phentolamine can improve cardiac performance in patients with heart failure. Positive inotropism and a reduction in afterload were shown to be the mechanisms that led to cardiac improvement. Since that time the literature...
