286 Dobutrex® and Ventiation-perfusion Inequalities


Dobutrex(Dobutamin HCl, Lilly) is a positive inotrop drug, which increases the stroke volume and blood flow, and reduces the systemic and pulmonary vascular resistance. In case of higher perfusion in poorly perfunded areas, the ventilation-perfusion(V/Q) inequality will increase. If it is located in the well-perfunded areas, the V/Q inequality will decrease… (More)
