OBJECTIVES To determine if renal dose dopamine (3 microg/kg/min) alters the heart rate (HR) by itself, or if a dopamine infusion alters the HR response to bolus doses of the beta-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol in healthy human subjects. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Clinical laboratory of a university-affiliated academic medical center. SUBJECTS A total of 15 healthy nonpregnant women and men aged 21 to 44 years. INTERVENTIONS Subjects were monitored continuously with bedside ECG… CONTINUE READING
