Hemodynamic response profile predicts susceptibility to cocaine-induced toxicity.


Cocaine evokes pressor responses due either to a large increase in systemic vascular resistance despite a decrease (>8%) in cardiac output (vascular responders) or to small increases in both cardiac output and vascular resistance (mixed responders) in conscious rats. These studies were designed to determine (1) if the hemodynamic response pattern to cocaine… (More)
