Abstract

Selective β1-adrenergic blockade did not reduce lipolysis; however, a β1- and β2-adrenergic blockade significantly reduced lipolysis. Thus, the increased lipolysis, characteristic of severely burned patients, is caused by stimulation of the β2-adrenergic receptors for catecholamines. (Arch Surg. 1994;129:1301-1305).
