Sample text

For instance, the administration of a vasopressor such as norepinephrine will increase left ventricular afterload and therefore increase myocardial oxygen consumption. However, by increasing perfusion pressure, oxygen delivery may be augmented. Whether the net effect is beneficial or harmful depends on the clinical situation. In a septic hypotensive patient with fixed coronary stenoses, the overall effect of norepinephrine is likely to be beneficial, but in a normotensive patient with borderline perfusion of the subendocardium, norepinephrine may worsen myocardial ischemia.

NEUROENDOCRINE AND METABOLIC EFFECTS Tissue injury results in the activation of nociceptors, which transduce a signal of actual or threatened tissue damage, via the sensory neurones, to the medulla of the brain. This signal is then integrated within the brain stem and results in activation of the sympathetic nervous system, the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, and the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. Hypothalamic corticotropin releasing hormone stimulates the release of adrenocorticotropic hormone from the anterior pituitary, which in turn stimulates the release of cortisol and other glucocorticoids from the adrenal cortex.

The drugs nitroglycerin and nitroprusside function as vasodilators by acting as donors of nitric oxide (see Chapter 3 ). Endothelins Endothelins[21] (endothelin 1, 2, and 3) are vasoconstrictor peptides synthesized by endothelium. As with nitric oxide, endothelins are produced and act locally (paracrine effect). , due to adopting the upright position). The synthesis and release of endothelins occur mainly in response to direct mechanical effects on the endothelium. However, their levels are augmented by norepinephrine, vasopressin, and angiotensin and are inhibited by nitric oxide, atrial natriuretic peptides, and prostacyclin.
