BACKGROUND Patients with anxiety prior to coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), may have negative physical and psychological consequences. AIM To identify patients factors associated with anxiety and assess the validity of the Faces Anxiety Scale (FAS) in this sample. METHODS Patients (n=159) were surveyed preprocedure using(More)
OBJECTIVE Many patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) experience symptoms of anxiety; however, it is unclear whether anxiety is an issue in the early recovery period and the types of factors and patient concerns that are associated. This study set out to determine the patterns of anxiety and concerns experienced by patients undergoing(More)
Ocular tension of cats was measured after topical administration of the selective beta 1-adrenergic agonist CGP 7760B, the selective beta 1-adrenergic antagonist atenolol, the selective beta 2-adrenergic agonist salbutamol, the selective beta 2-adrenergic antagonist H 35/25, and the mixed beta 1- and beta 2-adrenergic antagonist timolol. Although atenolol(More)
Ocular tension of conscious cats and rabbits was measured after topical application of clorgyline, a selective inhibitor of type A monoamine oxidase, or deprenyl, a selective inhibitor of line (1,4 and 12%) showed a dose-related reduction of intraocular pressure, with maximal lowerings amounting to 6 to 7 mm Hg. Pretreatment of eyes with clorgyline, 1%,(More)
The responses of rabbit pupils to graded doses of both adrenergic and cholinergic drugs after chemical sympathectomy with 6-hydroxydopamine have been examined. For comparison, similar data were obtained in rabbits treated chronically with the norepinephrine synthesis inhibitor, alpha-methyl-para-tyrosine. While quantitative differences were apparent, the(More)
The influence of adrenergic and cholinergic drugs on intraocular pressure after chemical sympathectomy produced by 6-hydroxydopamine has been examined in rabbits. For comparison, ocular tension in response to these same drugs has been measured after chronic treatment of rabbits with the norepinephrine synthesis inhibitor alpha-methyl-para-tyrosine. The(More)
After variation of the environmental lighting conditions, pupillary diameters of albino rabbits in response to progressively increasing doses of the sympathomimetics norepinephrine, epinephrine, and isoproterenol were measured. After maintenance of the rabbits under conditions of constant light for one week, an increased sensitivity of the iris dilator to(More)
