Etomidate alters calcium mobilization induced by angiotensin II in rat aortic smooth muscle cells.

Abstract

Etomidate is widely used for induction of anesthesia in the hemodynamically compromised patient, because of its moderate direct effect on arterial vasomotoricity and cardiac function, but its effect on blood pressure regulatory systems is not known. We studied the effect of etomidate (10(-8) to 10(-4) mol.L) on Ca++ mobilization elicited by angiotensin II… (More)
