STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of low dose dopexamine and dopamine on splanchnic blood flow as measured by gastric intramucosal pH, hepatic metabolism of lidocaine (lignocaine) to monoethylglycinexy-lidide (MEGX), and plasma disappearance rate of indocyanine green (ICG). DESIGN Single-blind randomization of patients with a gastric intramucosal acidosis to receive dopexamine (ten patients), dopamine (ten patients), or saline solution (five control patients) for 2 h. SETTING All 25… CONTINUE READING
