Renal effects of levosimendan

Inotropes not only affect cardiac output, but also promote vasodilation. However, not all inotropes promote increased renal estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). In the second part of the Orion symposium webcast, Professor Sven-Erik Ricksten of Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden, discusses how the action of different inotropes may influence renal blood flow and eGFR before presenting recent renal function data for levosimendan.
