Pharmacologic manipulation of the circulation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article reviews current understanding of the multiple homeostatic mechanisms active in vascular smooth muscle and some of the more commonly used drugs to manipulate intraoperative cardiovascular function. Almost none of the basic science information contained here was presented during my medical school or residency training; however, I believe our current understanding of the system provides a much firmer basis for the rational selection of vasoactive therapeutic agents. More importantly, it should establish a solid background for understanding the actions and side effects of drugs that have yet to become a part of our regular pharmaceutical armamentarium.
