The effect of a synthetic analogue of atrial natriuretic peptide (Ileu-ANP) on haemodynamic, hormonal, and electrolyte excretion indices was studied in 7 patients with chronic congestive heart failure. Patients received in random order placebo or Ileu-ANP infusions (5 micrograms/min) for 4 h on 2 separate occasions, at least 1 week apart. Compared with(More)
This report reviews the tolerability profile of enalapril, an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, in the treatment of patients with congestive heart failure. Data have been collected from 546 patients treated with enalapril for up to 9 months in clinical trials other than the Cooperative North Scandinavian Enalapril Survival Study. Results in(More)
The pharmacokinetics of sulindac have been studied after a single 200 mg oral dose in six normal subjects and five patients with surgical ileostomies. The plasma concentration-time curves for sulindac were similar in both groups up to 12 hours after dosing, indicating similar absorption of the drug. Higher plasma concentrations of sulindac were found in(More)
This review will discuss the safety profiles of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors captopril, enalapril and lisinopril in patients with hypertension. In general, the safety profiles of ACE inhibitors compare favourably with those of other agents used for the treatment of hypertension. Adverse effects are not common when ACE inhibitors are(More)
This paper describes the conversion of partial hospitals into recovery-oriented programs as part of system transformation. Steps included: participatory planning with stakeholders; strength based assessment of resources and needs; technical assistance; and changing funding strategies. Over a period of 8 years, use of partial hospitals decreased as persons(More)
To study the relationship of the serum digoxin concentration to the digoxin effect on monovalent cation transport during the quinidine-digoxin interaction, we used radiolabeled rubidium to measure monovalent cation active transport in myocardial biopsy samples from dogs. In a preliminary study, we showed that quinidine did not affect rubidium uptake by(More)
Quinidine elevates serum digoxin concentration in part by reducing the volume of distribution of digoxin, which implies that quinidine displaces digoxin from tissues. The purposes of this study were to: 1) measure the effect of quinidine on tissue digoxin concentrations, and 2) determine if quinidine alters the relation between myocardial digoxin(More)
