Natrecor and Dobutamine Infusions

Cardiologists sometimes use intravenous infusions to help augment heart function in patients with cardiomyopathy. Cardiomyopathy is a medical term describing profound weakness of the heart muscle. This deterioration of the heart muscle may result from prior heart attacks, severe viral illness, hereditary muscle diseases, alcoholism or sometimes no apparent reason at all. These medications help stimulate the heart to pump faster and more forcefully.
