Abstract

In 25 patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting hemodynamic measurements (including values obtained with Swan-Ganz catheterization in 21 of the patients) were made before and after administering a bolus injection of 64 or 96 mcg of nitroglycerin to relieve intraoperative hypertension. This pharmacological agent reduced afterload and preload without raising heart rate. The effect was apparent within 1-3 min and lasted 5-10 min. Untoward hypotension was not encountered in any instance. This intervention appears to be a safe approach to the treatment of intraoperative hypertension in patients with coronary artery disease.
