Pattern of breathing and gas exchange following oral almitrine bismesylate in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Abstract:

Almitrine bismesylate (100 mg orally) significantly raised PaO2 and lowered PaCO2 in six patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, compared to placebo, when they were breathing air or 28% oxygen. The estimated ideal alveolar arterial PO2 difference (AaDO2) was less after almitrine bismesylate compared to placebo, when patients were breathing either air or 28% oxygen. After almitrine bismesylate overall ventilation breathing air increased by 10% but this did not reach statistical si...
