Associations of Valsalva Maneuver with chemical compounds

  • However, we have previously identified a form of nonreentrant, catecholamine-mediated VT that can be initiated with rapid pacing, demonstrates cycle length dependence, and is sensitive to exogenous adenosine as well as to the Valsalva maneuver [23].
  • Pretreatment with atropine or propranolol in four patients did not alter the response of VT to the Valsalva maneuver [10].
  • Plasma epinephrine was increased by caffeine, treadmill exercise, the cold pressor test, handgrip exercise and the Valsalva maneuver, in that order [24].
  • Obstruction could not be provoked postoperatively in ten of the 11 patients who had large gradients only with the Valsalva maneuver or isoproterenol administration preoperatively [25].
  • Reflexive responses to the Valsalva maneuver were considerably modified by both intravenous and oral timolol but responses to 50 degrees upright tilt and handgrip were not [26].

Gene context of Valsalva Maneuver

  • Leak point pressure is determined by increasing abdominal pressure, which can be done with a Valsalva maneuver or coughing, that is Valsalva LPP and cough LPP (CLPP) [27].
  • We conclude (1) that patients with severe COPD have an increased prevalence of PFO and (2) that approximately one half of subjects with severe COPD and PFO demonstrate statistically significant systemic arterial oxygen desaturation after the Valsalva maneuver [28].
  • Contrast echocardiograms during normal quiet respiration and during the Valsalva maneuver were performed in 15 patients with atrial septal defect (ASD) by injecting saline solution into an antecubital vein [29].
  • SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The responses of patients to standing, quantitated Valsalva maneuver, facial immersion in ice water, and administration of isoproterenol, phenylephrine, and tyramine were compared with those in 12 asymptomatic patients with MVP and 23 normal volunteers [30].
  • No change was observed in response to tilting or Valsalva's maneuver or in plasma renin activity [31].
