  • Dopamine- Intermediate dosages from 5 to 10 μg/kg/min, known as the "cardiac dose", additionally have a positive inotropic and chronotropic effect through increased β1 receptor activation. Dopamine is used in patients with shock or heart failure to increase cardiac output and blood pressure.Dopamine begins to affect the heart at lower doses, from about 3 μg/kg/min IV.High doses from 10 to 20 μg/kg/min are the "pressor dose". This dose causes vasoconstriction, increases systemic vascular resistance, and increases blood pressure through α1 receptor activation, but can cause the vessels in the kidneys to constrict to the point that urine output is reduced.
