We compared cardiocircolatory actions of the commonly employed systemic vasodilators, intravenous (iv) nitroprusside (NP), Iv phentolamlDe (PH), and subliagoal nitroglycerin (NTG), causing left ventricular (LV) unloading in 29 chronic coronary subjects with congestive failure to determine whether they produce disparate responses in LV function by different relaxing actions on systemic resistance and capacitance beds. Each drug equally lowered systemic arterial pressures to a small extent… CONTINUE READING
