Hemodynamic effects of arbutamine

Academic Article


  • In summary, this study in humans shows that intravenous arbutamine produces a balanced inotropic and chronotropic effect. Arbutamine may also produce systemic vasodilation, which may be a factor in producing myocardial ischemia in patients with CAD. This hemodynamic profile is appropriate for an effective pharmacologic stress agent.
