Summary of the haemodynamic changes that occur in the first 4 hours after treatment with milrinone or dobutamine [2]. All differences are presented as percentage change from baseline and are statistically significant. (a) The positive changes indicate an increase in heart rate (HR) and a decrease in pulmonary artery occlusion pressure (PAOP) with either milrinone (M) or dobutamine (D). (b) The changes represent the increases in cardiac index (CI) and mean arterial pressure (MAP) with milrinone (M) and dobutamine (D).
