Renal blood flow is reduced in patients with chronic respiratory failure caused by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and changes in renal hemodynamics are likely to be important in the pathogenesis of the edematous state of cor pulmonale. We therefore examined the hypothesis that this renal vasoconstriction is reversible by comparing the effects of oxygen therapy and the renal vasodilator dopamine on renal hemodynamics in both hypoxemic patients with COPD and those who were also… CONTINUE READING
