The effect of sublingual nifedipine (20 mg) on haemodynamics at rest and during bicycle ergometry in supine position was assessed in 22 patients with precapillary pulmonary hypertension (obstructive form: n = 17, restrictive form: n = 2, combined obstructive-restrictive: n = 3). At rest nifedipine resulted in an increase of cardiac frequency from 85 to 89/min, during exercise from 109 to 120/min (P less than 0.05). Concomitantly the mean arterial blood pressure decreased significantly both at… CONTINUE READING
