AU - Vijg, Jan. AU - Richardson, Arlan. AU - Guo, ZhongMao. PY - 2003/1/1. Y1 - 2003/1/1. N2 - Background: Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has been shown to induce vascular smooth muscle cell contraction in vitro. In this study, the effect of endogenously produced H2O2 on blood pressure (BP) was examined using a transgenic mouse model (hCatTg+/0) in which catalase is over-expressed. Methods: The hCatTg+/0 and wild-type mice received a bolus injection of norepinephrine (NE; 1 μg/g) or angiotensin II (Ang II; 0.5 μg/g), or an osmotic minipump infusion of NE (2.5 μg/g/day) or Ang II (0.5 μg/g/day) for 7 days. Systolic BP (SBP) was measured using a tail-cuff apparatus. H2O2 release from mouse aortas was measured using an H2O2 assay kit. Results: The hCatTg+/0 and wild-type mice showed similar basal levels of ...
A review by Lo, et al in 2014 looked at the available data until 2012 and concluded that methylene blue may be a useful adjunct to vasopressors in shock due to sepsis (n=159), overdose (n=1), or anaphylaxis (n=9) (5). Limitations of this review include the use of numerous case reports with only two RCTs, and significant heterogeneity with regard to patient population, study design, MB dosage, vasopressor use, timing of administration, and clinically oriented outcomes. However, there was a universal improvement in BP or MAP of patients who received MB. These effects on MAP were also confirmed by a systematic review of 5 RCTs that included the two evaluated by Lo and 3 others involving postoperative patients (6). In the studies that examined it, vasopressor requirements were significantly decreased with MB administration. The two RCTs (7,8) did not show a significant mortality difference between treatment groups, but these studies may not have been sufficiently powered to detect such a difference. ...

Our data provide the first evidence in humans to support the hypothesis that obesity-related changes in adipose tissue have direct effects on the vasoactive properties of PVAT.14,15 We report abnormalities in adiponectin-mediated anticontractile properties of PVAT, endothelium-mediated dilation of the artery, and changes to the inflammatory and hypoxic profile of subcutaneous adipose tissue in obesity and metabolic syndrome. Additionally, using in vitro animal and human small-artery studies, hypoxia and inflammation were shown to attenuate the local vasoactive properties of PVAT by oxidative stress.. In healthy individuals, PVAT mediated an anticontractile effect. Although observed previously in medium-sized arteries,24 this is the first demonstration of this effect in human small arteries, and we are also the first to demonstrate a complete loss of the anticontractile effect in patients with obesity and metabolic syndrome. Subsequently, in vitro, we were able to replicate the biological changes ...
Experiments on perfused segments or isolated rings of human umbilical artery showed that the magnitude of their contraction in response to bradykinin, epinephrine, or serotonin depended on the Po2 of the perfusing or bathing solution. Constriction to bradykinin varied directly with the O2 tension and was greatest when the Po2 was approximately that of umbilical arterial blood during the transition from the fetal to the neonatal period. Catecholamine beta-receptors were not demonstrated (not present or not functional) in the umbilical artery, since there was no vascular response to either isoproterenol or to propranolol. Alpha-receptors were not required for O2 or bradykinin constriction since these agents constricted the umbilical artery after enough phentolamine had been given to block constriction by norepinephrine. Because of the interaction between O2 and vasoconstrictor agents the O2 environment of umbilical vessels must be rigidly controlled in experiments measuring vascular reactivity. ...

To clarify the effects of active vitamin D3 on pressor and vascular responses to vasoconstrictor substances, we studied pressor responses to the intravenous injection of norepinephrine or angiotensin II (Ang II) and vasoconstrictor responses to norepinephrine. Sprague-Dawley rats were given 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 subcutaneously (200 ng/kg per day) for 14 days. The administration of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 augmented the pressor responses to norepinephrine and Ang II in conscious rats and was associated with a significant increase in serum calcium concentration (11.0 +/- 0.2 mg/dl). To further clarify whether the increased pressor response to vasoconstrictors may be due to the calcemic or direct action of active vitamin D3, we studied the effect of its noncalcemic analogue, 22-oxacalcitriol, and its inactive analogue, 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, on the pressor response to vasoconstrictors in rats. The pressor responses to norepinephrine and Ang II were apparently augmented in ...
Kristine A. Sobolewski , Alison Brophy , Yekaterina Opsha et el published a retrospective cohort study comparing abrupt withdrawal versus taper of hydrocortisone in resolving septic shock patients.. BACKGROUND. Severe sepsis and septic shock remains one of the most common diagnosis as well as cause of death in intensive care units around the world.. Hydrocortisone has been shown to quicker resolution of shock as well as time of discharge from ICU along with fewer blood transfusions when used in patients with septic shock.. Current surviving sepsis guidelines recommend not using hydrocortisone routinely if adequate fluid resuscitation and vasopressor therapy are able to restore hemodynamic stability. If this is not achievable, then they recommend using hydrocortisone intravenously.. However, there are no comparative studies that support tapering verses abrupt cessation of steroids and inconsistency remains in medical practice with the withdrawal of steroids.. STUDY. Retrospective cohort study of ...

Shock is one of the leading causes of ICU admission, and is associated with a high risk of death, whatever its cause. Ad- renergic agents are the most commonly used vasopressor agents. Although the alpha-adrenergic properties of these agents raise blood pressure, they can also variably stimulate the beta-adrenergic and dopaminergic receptors. Accordingly, these agents have different haemodynamic profiles as well as different metabolic profiles. Minimal beta-adrenergic stimulation may be beneficial in preventing the decrease in cardiac output related to the increase in left ventricular afterload associated with the correction of hypotension. However, excessive beta-adrenergic stimulation (which can occur as the doses of these agents are adjusted for the vasopressor effect can have profound metabolic effects and promote arrhythmias. Whether these differences in haemodynamic and metabolic profiles impact out- come has long been undefined. Two randomized trials comparing dopamine and norepinephrine ...

Sleep apnea (SA) affects as many as 20% of the adult population in the United States. It elicits intermittent hypoxia (IH) and causes pulmonary hypertension (PH), however the mechanisms of this PH have not been well studied. IH has been shown to cause polycythemia, pulmonary vascular remodeling and increases in vasoconstrictor reactivity. CO2 supplementation may be protective in the development of PH, therefore we assessed effects of IH with and without CO2 supplementation on indices of PH and pulmonary vasoconstrictor reactivity. IH with CO2 supplementation resulted in eucapnic IH (E-IH) and the lack of polycythemia or vascular remodeling. However, E-IH caused significant right ventricular hypertrophy and increased pulmonary vasoconstrictor reactivity, which was mediated by vascular smooth muscle (VSM) Ca2+ sensitization. We, therefore, sought to determine the mechanism of this enhanced vasoconstrictor reactivity by assessing vasoconstriction and VSM Ca2+ responses to the endothelium-derived
Ang II infusion induces an immediate vasoconstrictive response that is typically followed by a gradual recovery despite continued infusion of the pressor agent. The buffering effect on Ang II-induced vasoconstriction is at least in part mediated by vasodilatory PGs, including PGE2.14,16-18 In a previous study, we discovered a novel role of mPGES-1-derived PGE2 in modulating Ang II-induced hypertensive response. In extension of this work, the present study demonstrated that the vasculoprotection of PGE2 is mediated by the suppression of oxidative stress.. Ang II-induced hypertension in mPGES-1−/− mice was completely prevented by Tempol treatment and was fully restored on termination of the antioxidant. Treatment with a second antioxidant, apocynin, produced a similar blood pressure-lowering effect. Apocynin is widely used as an inhibitor of NADPH oxidase19 but was recently found to inhibit vascular oxidative stress via an NADPH oxidase-independent mechanism.20 Together, the similar results ...
Data from the literature show lights and shadows about the use of angiotensin II (Ang II), for instance as an alternative vasopressor in patients with vasodilatory shock that requires high doses of catecholamines. Recently, an international randomized controlled trial (ATHOS-3) [1] has shown that Ang II can induce a significant increase in mean arterial pressure (MAP) if compared to placebo. Moreover, during the first 48 hours from the randomization, doses of the vasopressors (norepinephrine (NE) and vasopressin) were significantly reduced in the Ang II group but not in the placebo group. Interestingly, no difference in adverse effects was remarkable between the two groups.. However, some important issues need to be clarified before any definitive conclusion about Ang II in vasodilatory shock. Firstly, we do not know exactly the timing for Ang II initiation: is it better to add Ang II only when NE doses jump to 0.2 μg/kg/min or when NE requirements rapidly increase (e.g., 0.5 μg/kg every ...
Septic shock is a life-threatening condition requiring intense patient monitoring and supportive therapy for organ dysfunction. Release of inflammatory mediators leads to widespread vasodilatation, capillary leak and reduced systemic vascular resistance. After initial fluid resuscitation, vasopressor therapy is required. These agents have their effect by increasing vascular resistance, raising mean arterial pressure and maintaining perfusion of critical body tissues and organ systems. ...
It is unclear whether terlipressin could be harmful to the splanchnic circulation. In our study, after a bolus dose of terlipressin, despite the restoration of MAP, we observed a significant decrease in cardiac index as a result of an increase in vascular resistance. The vasoconstriction after terlipressin administration17-20 could cause, or at least worsen, hypoperfusion-related alterations in organ function. Accordingly, the main finding of the study was the significant decrease in gastric mucosal perfusion, mainly linked to the potent vasoconstriction with the resultant decrease in cardiac index observed after terlipressin as compared with norepinephrine. The reduction of cardiac index is correlated not only to the rapid increase of the vascular resistances (mathematically coupled) but also to the reduction of HR. The phenomenon of the decrease in HR is attributable to a strong reflex suppression of cardiac output that is seen even at physiologic plasma concentrations of arginine ...
The influence of i.a. infusions of equivalent doses of prostaglandins (PG) E1, E2, F1α and F2α on vasoconstrictor responses to norepinephrine and sympathetic nerve stimulation were evaluated in the dog hindpaw perfused at constant flow. Infusions of PGE1 and PGE2,1 µg/min, decreased vascular resistance in the hindpaw. PGE1 markedly reduced responses to i.a. norepinephrine, angiotensin and sympathetic nerve stimulation whereas PGE2 did not alter these responses. However, when the infusion rate was increased to 2 µg/min, responses to nerve stimulation, but not norepinephrine, were enhanced. Infusion of PGF1α, and PGF2α, 1 µg/min, caused no change in vancular resistance in the hindpaw but enhanced the response to sympathetic nerve stimulation. PGF1α, decreased the response to norepinephrine whereas PGF2α, was without effect. These results suggest that PGF2α may enhance adrenergic transmission in the hindpaw by facilitating the release of transmitter from sympathetic nerve endings and that ...

The inotropic and vasoactive properties of the ligand apelin and its cognate G-protein coupled receptor APJ have been characterized by administration of exogenous peptide, but the function of endogenous apelin on the cardiovascular system is not well described. To investigate the tonic effects of apelin-APJ in contractile function, we generated and characterized apelin and APJ null mice. We also investigated the regulation of apelin and APJ receptor expression in response to cardiac pressure overload. While knockout apelin mice were viable and fertile, APJ null mice showed evidence of fetal wastage for approximately half of the embryos. Compared to wild-type controls, APJ deficient mice reaching adulthood had significantly reduced exercise capacity (treadmill runtime: 20.30 ± 0.974 vs. 23.64 ± 0.737, P=0.009) and LV fractional shortening by echocardiography (29.88 ± 0.927% vs. 44.93 ± 2.66%, P,0.0001). Isolated myocytes from APJ knockouts exhibited reduced sarcomeric shortening (5.070 ± ...

In the early hours of the morning, near the end of the shift, I received a call to a 19 year-old male who was having an allergic reaction to his medicine. I arrived to find the man shivering in a chair and looking unwell. His friends were with him and they told me that he had brought medicine for a cold back from India where he had been recently and that he had started reacting to it. He had an erythemic rash but his airway seemed safe. His BP was a concern, however; it was consistently low - sometimes very low. When the crew arrived and we got him into the ambulance, we pondered this situation some more and I noticed that his feet were a little swollen and very red. I considered the possibility that the reaction was causing fluid pooling in his peripheries, which would explain his low BP. His legs were raised but this didnt help much, so I set up fluids and asked the crew to give him adrenaline, which would reverse the effects of histamine and nitric oxide and cause vasoconstriction, which in ...
