The Use of Aramine in Clinical Shock
The use of vasopressor agents in shock is of established value and has become a common form of treatment. Aramine was used in over 250 unselected cases of shock of varied etiology, of which 42 cases are reported in some detail. This agent continues to produce a vasopressor effect after the actual cessation of administration, and its use is characterized by ease in maintaining the desired blood pressure level. Distressing side effects, such as thrombophlebitis or tissue slough, do not occur.
