Inotropic agents alter the force or energy of muscular contractions. Negatively inotropic agents weaken the force of muscular contractions. Positively inotropic agents increase the strength of muscular contraction. Inotropic agents are used in hospitalized patients with acute decompensated heart failure, with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction and with signs of end-organ dysfunction in the setting of a low cardiac output, or with severe systolic heart failure awaiting heart transplant to maintain hemodynamic stability or as a bridge to decision.
