  • We studied the effects of age and gender on cardiovascular responses to beta-adrenergic stimulation with the use of two-dimensional echocardiography in 16 young (aged 20-31) and 20 older (aged 60-75) healthy individuals. Following administration of atropine, each subject was given an infusion of isoproterenol at incremental doses from 0.010 to 0.030 microgram kg-1 min-1. The slopes of the fractional shortening-end-systolic wall stress (FS-sigma es) relationships were steeper in the young men… CONTINUE READING
