Dobutamine Act Receptor
An organ, cell or molecule that accepts an outside signal and causes an internal change.

At lower doses it doesnt affect the blood vessels but higher doses it can also lower the tone of the ateries and makes it easier for the heart to pump. This tone is aka systemic vascular resistence. By lowering the svr the cariac out put will increase. Nipride has no beta stim effects only svr. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I was wondering what are the differences of levophed, dopamine and dobutamine in terms of their action?
You Asked for It----: Dobutamine- direct b1 receptor stimulant or agonist in the sympathetic nervous system. Levophed- vasoconstrictor peripherally (alpha adrenergic effects) and beta adrenergic stimulant at the level of the heart and coronary vessels dopamine- dual b1 and Alpha adrenergic effects. Useful in hypovolemic shock because of conservancy of renal blood flow. Also, works centrally in other complex ways. ...Read more
