Abstract

The hemodynamic effects of oral nisoldiopine in 12 hypertensive patients aged 35-55 years were determined using the impedance cardiography method. Hemodynamic measurements were performed at hourly intervals before and following ingestion of the medication. Nisoldipine significantly decreased systolic and diastolic blood pressure, with a slight increase in heart rate. Stroke volume did not change significantly following the medication. Total peripheral resistance decreased gradually reaching its lowest values 2 h after ingestion of nisoldipine. We conclude that nisoldipine is a potent oral antihypertensive agent that induces peripheral vasodilatation without decrease in cardiac output.
