Impaired left ventricular stroke volume reserve during clinical dobutamine stress predicts future episodes of pulmonary edema.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine whether dobutamine-induced abnormal stress changes in left ventricular stroke volume (LVSV) and aortic stiffness predict future pulmonary edema. BACKGROUND: Increased aortic stiffness that decreases LVSV during adrenergic stress may serve as a marker for future pulmonary edema (PE). METHODS: We measured LVSV, ventriculovascular stiffness (pulse pressure/LVSV(index)), and aortic distensibility at rest and during intravenous dobutamine admi...
