Influence of amrinone on tissue oxygenation of jejunal mucosa during endotoxemia.


BACKGROUND The intestinal mucosa is the portion of the gut most susceptible to impaired perfusion and oxygen delivery. The phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitor amrinone has been proposed to improve oxygen delivery and tissue perfusion during sepsis. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of amrinone on arterial oxygenation (Pao(2)) and… (More)
