Abstract

The ability of dobutamine to precondition the isolated rat heart against postischemic contractile dysfunction was assessed. Hearts were perfused with varying concentrations of dobutamine for 5 min followed by a 5 min "washout" period and 30 min of global ischemia. The hearts were reperfused for 30 min to assess postischemic function. Dobutamine improved postischemic developed pressure, +dp/dt, heart rate × developed pressure, end diastolic pressure and coronary flow in a concentration-dependent manner. The concentration of dobutamine showing the maximum protective effect was 10-6M. Propranolol administered with dobutamine significantly attenuated the protective effect. The results indicate that transient treatment with dobutamine can precondition the rat heart against ischemia/reperfusion injury. The mechanism of protection appears to involve β-adrenergic stimulation.
