Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Eleven patients in sinus rhythm were hospitalized with severe heart failure not brought on by an acute ischemic event. Initial therapy with intravenous diuretics and systemic vasodilators resulted in improved signs and symptoms in all patients. In spite of the clinical compensation achieved with diuretics and vasodilators, cardiac function, particularly in those patients in whome abnormal hemodynamic variables persisted, improved even more after intravenous administration of digoxin.
