1 We have studied the effects of single oral doses of 80 mg propranolol and 100 mg atenolol on breathing during progressive exercise in nine healthy men in a double-blind, placebo-controlled experiment. As judged by their effects on exercise heart rate significant levels of beta-adrenoceptor blockade were achieved. 2 At the two lower levels of work rate (50 watts and 100 watts) minute ventilation on atenolol was lower than on placebo while at the highest level of work (200 watts) minute… CONTINUE READING
