AIMS To study the dose-response effects of intravenous terbutaline on the cardiovascular and respiratory autonomic nervous regulation. METHODS The study followed a randomized, placebo-controlled crossover design in six healthy adult volunteers. The terbutaline dose ranged from 10 to 30 microg min(-1) We continuously measured electrocardiogram, finger systolic arterial pressure (SAP) and flow-volume spirometry in supine and upright positions at baseline and during 3 h drug infusion.
