Hemodynamic effects of 1-[3,4-dihydroxyphenyl]-1,2-diaminoethane versus norepinephrine during ventricular fibrillation and cardiopulmonary resuscitation.


We hypothesized that substitution of the hydroxyl group (OH) on the beta carbon of norepinephrine (NE) with an amino group would yield a compound, 1-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-1,2-diaminoethane (DHPDAE), that would maintain the hemodynamic properties of NE during CPR, but would decrease the rate of post-defibrillation dysrhythmias.
