Studies concerning the hemodynamic effects of this new antidepolarizing agent are scarce and difficult to interpret because of drug interactions, and of an accentuation of vagal tonus related to the use of morphinomimetic analgesics. For a better approach of the effects proper to fazadinium, we have tried to perform a study freed, to a maximum, from any drug interference. We studied the hemodynamic effects to a single dose of 1 of fazadinium bromide during 35 minutes in coronary patients normal hemodynamically or rhythmically, non-premedicated, ventilated with 50 p. 100 nitrous oxide in oxygen, and bebore any surgical procedure. All hemodynamic modifications are moderate and maximal 10 minutes after injection. The stroke index decreases 16 p. 100, heart rate increases 6 p. 100 and cardiac index falls 10 p. 100. Total peripheral resistance remains unchanged and mean arterial pressure drops 10 p. 100. Finally pulmonary wedge pressure decreases slightly. None of these modifications are statistically significant. One may, therefore, conclude that fazadinium tolerance, when the drug is freed from any drug interference, in coronary patients normal hemodynamically and free from rhythm disorders is excellent from a hemodynamic ...Continue Reading

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
