Cardiac output and mean arterial blood pressure measurements were performed on anesthetized dogs during exposure to bromotrifluoromethane. Left ventricular end diastolic pressure was recorded from anesthetized open-chested dogs and monkeys during exposure to CBrF3. A significant decrease in total peripheral resistance and myocardial contractility were shown to combine to produce a reversible hypotension during exposure to CBrF3.
