The aging heart

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Despite the assumption that age weakens the heart's pumping power and contractility, overall cardiac function is well maintained with advancing years. However, age-related changes do have to be taken into account in the treatment of cardiac disease, particularly with inotropic drugs and agents that influence the adrenergic nervous system.
