Left ventricular function was assessed in six patients with essentially normal cardiopulmonary function, in five patients with primary myocardial disease, and in 16 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease by determining the response of the ventricle to an increased resistance to ejection. Studies were performed at the time of cardiac catheterization and increased resistance to left ventricular ejection was produced by the intravenous infusion of methoxamine. In the control patients… CONTINUE READING
