The effect of torasemide and furosemide therapy was compared in 50 patients who had chronic heart failure and symptoms [NYHA class II-III] despite long-term therapy with both low-dose furosemide and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. In this randomized 6-month, open-label trial, baseline and follow-up echocardiograms and neurohumoral assays were(More)
This study was carried out in order to establish the scient medicinal use of Stachytarpheta cayennensis (Verbanace toxicity and barbituric-hypnotic test of the total aqueous and butanol (SCBT), ethylacetate (SCEA) fractions of were studied in male rats and mice. The effect of system sleep architecture in rats was also evaluated in Sp chronically implanted(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether left atrial (LA) function contributes to pulmonary circulatory pressure during pacing-tachycardia and exercise capacity in patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Thirty-two patients with DCM and in sinus rhythm had limited exercise capacity because of dyspnea. The correlation between peak oxygen(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate effects of interocclusal distance (IOD) on bite force and masseter electromyographic (EMG) activity during different isometric contraction tasks. Thirty-one healthy participants (14 women and 17 men, 21·2 ± 1·8 years) were recruited. Maximal Voluntary Occlusal Bite Force (MVOBF) between the first molars and masseter(More)
This study was designed to evaluate effects of fentanyl (F) on heart rate (HR), systemic blood pressure (SBP) and renal sympathetic nerve activity (RNA) in urethane- or halothane-anesthetized rabbits. Twenty three urethane-anesthetized rabbits were divided into the following four groups: animals with neuraxis intact (Intact group, N = 8), cervical(More)
To evaluate the role of the autonomic nervous system in the development of hypotension during air embolism, we studied the effects of an intravenous bolus injection of air (0.5 ml/kg) on mean blood pressure (MBP), central venous pressure (CVP), and renal nerve activity (RNA) in urethan-anesthetized rabbits of three groups: animals with an intact neuraxis(More)
We designed this experiment to evaluate effects of intravenous bolus injection of air (0.5 ml.kg-1) on systemic blood pressure (SBP), central venous pressure (CVP), and renal nerve activity (RNA) in urethane-anesthetized rabbits. Animals were divided into the following three groups: animals with neuraxis intact (I group, N = 5), cervical vagotomized animals(More)
