Low caloric diet is a commonly accepted treatment in obesity. However, owing to moderate results, a pharmacological support has been proposed. As some efficacious drugs activate overall sympathetic activity, they might modify functions of the cardiovascular system. Three groups of subjects were studied: (1) nine obese women receiving only a standard(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate a usefulness of thoracic electrical bioimpedance (TEB) in following adaptive haemodynamic adjustments to postural change and isometric exercise. Sixteen subjects with intact cardiovascular system took part in this study. Haemodynamic parameters were obtained in recumbency and after taking up erect posture. Besides, TEB(More)
An anorectic drug, dexfenfluramine (dF) is commonly used in obesity treatment. The aim of our study was to investigate if dexfenfluramine used alone or together with alpha 2-adrenolitic yohimbine (Y), can change cardiovascular state in obese women.
It seems that hypervolemia and vasodilatation coincide in compensated cirrhosis, but neither rank nor importance of these factors has been fully clarified in adaptive response to postural change. We studied, with gated equilibrium radionuclide angiography and thoracic electrical bioimpedance the hemodynamic status of 19 patients with compensated cirrhosis(More)
