Hemodynamic imbalances in shock due to MI, trauma, endotoxicsepticemia, open-heart surgery, renal failure & chronic cardiac decompensationsas in congestive failure
Adrenergic Agonist Agent, Sympathoimetic; Vesicant
Mechanism of Action:
Stimulates both adrenergic & dopaminergic receptors, lower doses are mainly dopaminergic-stimulating and produce renal and mesentericvasodilation, higher doses also are both dopaminergic and beta
-adrenergicstimulating and produce cardiac stimulation and renal vasodilation; large dosesstimulate alpha-adrenergic receptors

Pregnancy Risk Category: CAdverse Reactions:
