Active Ingredient : Dobutamine Hydrochloride

Strength : 250 mg /5 ml

Presentation : 5 ml clear glass ampoules. Each cartons contain 5 x 5ml ampoules.

 

Indications:

Dobutamine is indicated for adults who require inotropic support in the treatment of low output cardiac failure associated with myocardial infarction, open heart surgery, cardiomyopathies, septic shock or cardiogenic shock. Dobutamine can increase or maintain cardiac output during positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP) ventilation.

Dobutamine may also be used as an alternative to exercise for cardiac stress testing in patients for whom exercise testing is impracticable. This use of dobutamine should be confined to units where exercise stress testing is routinely performed and the usual monitoring and precautions required for such testing should be applied when Dobutamine is used for this purpose.
