Esmolol infusion at rates of 200, 300, and 400 was used to potentiate hypotension (mean arterial pressure = 60 mm Hg) induced with sodium nitroprusside (SNP) in 10 male patients undergoing radical cancer surgery during nitrous oxide-oxygen and fentanyl anesthesia. Heart rate (HR), blood pressure (radial arterial catheter), and plasma levels of renin activity (PRA), norepinephrine (N), epinephrine (E), and dopamine (D) were measured: 1) while patients were awake; 2) after induction of anesthesia (nitrous oxide, 60% in oxygen, fentanyl = 5 micrograms/kg followed by an infusion at 10; 3) after surgery had begun; 4) after 20 minutes of SNP-induced hypotension; 5) after 20 minutes of esmolol at each of the above infusion rates; and 6) after the completion of surgery. Compared to awake values, SNP-induced hypotension (mean infusion rate = 3.1 +/- 0.6 SE) during surgery resulted in significant (P less than 0.05) increases in heart rate, PRA, N, and D. Infusion of esmolol resulted in significant (P less than 0.05) dose-dependent reductions in SNP requirement to maintain MAP = 60 mm Hg. At 200, SNP requirement was 2.1 +/- 0.4, at 300, it was 1.0 +/- 0.2, and at 400, was 0.5 +/- 0.3. Concomitant with the decrease in SNP requirement, there were significant reductions in HR and PRA at all infusion rates of esmolol.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
