This study has demonstrated in an awake goat the differential effects of infusing low dose epinephrine and norepinephrine. Epinephrine increases pulmonary fluid exchange, possibly as a result of β stimulation to the heart; whereas norepinephrine results in little change in pulmonary fluid balance, primarily affecting vascular vasoreactivity. This study underscores the importance of testing drug responses in awake animal models.
