Some Effects of Digoxin upon the Heart and Circulation in Man
Digoxin in Chronic Cor Pulmonale
The effects of acute digitalization upon the dynamics of the circulation were observed in patients with chronic cor pulmonale, using the technic of cardiac catheterization. The state of the circulation was further investigated in the same patients following recovery from failure. The mode of action of intravenous digoxin is discussed, and a tentative concept of the pathogenesis of chronic cor pulmonale is presented.
