Treatment of Shock and Prevention of Ischemic Necrosis with Levarterenol-Phentolamine Mixtures
Good pressor responses were obtained in 51 of 68 cases of shock treated with levarterenol-phentolamine mixtures. No necrosis developed in 33 extravasations of mixtures. One slough resulted from an extravasation of 8 mg./L. of levarterenol alone. Our present practice is to add 5 mg. of phentolamine to each liter of levarterenol solution.
