1. Rimiterol and isoprenaline produced significant dose-related increases in cardiac output. 2. These changes in cardiac output were accompanied by increases in heart rate and myocardial oxygen consumption which were similar for each drug and dose-related. 3. Isoprenaline in contrast with rimiterol produced direct coronary vasodilation, i.e. coronary vasodilation in excess of that required to meet increases in myocardial oxygen demands. 4. It is suggested that the beta-adrenergic receptors in the human coronary vasculature are mainly of the beta1 type. 5. Rimiterol, because it does not produce direct coronary vasodilation may be preferable to isoprenaline in the treatment of low-cardiac output syndrome where there is regional myocardial ischaemia, since it would be less likely to produce a "coronary steal" effect.
