  • Isoproterenol‐Induced vs Nitroglycerin‐Induced Syncope. Introduction: A reduction in left ventricular volume and an increase in epinephrine levels have been reported in tilt‐induced neurally mediated syncope. To compare the mechanisms of isoproterenol‐induced and nitroglycerin‐induced syncope during head‐up tilt and to investigate the role of catecholamines, the temporal changes in plasma levels of norepinephrine and epinephrine and in left ventricular volume were measured.
