To assess the hemodynamic effects of digoxin (0.01 mg/kg) on congestive heart failure, we evaluated 19 patients with decreased contraction force of left ventricle (old myocardial infarction n = 9, and dilated cardiomyopathy n = 10, group 1) and 8 patients with mechanical impaired left ventricular filing (mitral stenosis n = 8, group 2). In groups 1 and 2, heart rate and pulmonary capillary pressure significantly decreased (p less than 0.05). In group 1, stroke volume increased, but not… CONTINUE READING
