Effects of low-dose dobutamine on left ventricular diastolic filling in children

Abstract

To investigate the effects of dobutamine on the Doppler transmitral flow pattern in children with normal left ventricular function, Doppler echocardiography was used to measure the transmitral flow in 14 healthy children before and during infusion of dobutamine (5 μg/kg per minute). Cardiac output was measured by the thermodilution method, and stroke volume… (More)
