In rabbits, intravenous vasopressor doses of dopamine augmented peritoneal clearances of creatinine and urea, suggesting increased mesenteric blood flow and possibly augmented permeability. Intraperitoneal dopamine also accelerated peritoneal transport of urea. Solute transport across the peritoneum was decreased by intravenous infusion of 1-norepinephrine. Intraperitoneal administration of the alpha-adrenergic antagonist phentolamine partially abolished the augmentation of peritoneal… CONTINUE READING
