1. The distribution of cardiac output during administration of levosimendan, a new myofilament calcium sensitizer, is unknown. We examined and compared the effects of levosimendan, pimobendan, and milrinone on regional tissue perfusion by use of the radioactive microsphere technique in barbiturate-anaesthetized dogs. 2. Haemodynamics and regional blood flow… CONTINUE READING
