Abstract:

A series of young patients with well defined diagnoses and refractory clinical shock were studied hemodynamically. When conventional methods of therapy failed to correct hemodynamic deficits phenoxybenzamine was administered and physiologic parameters were carefully monitored. The pattern of response suggests that phenoxybenzamine improved cardiac function directly and thereby improved tissue capillary perfusion.
