Abstract

Eight patients with coronary artery disease performed a cold pressor test (CPT) and hand-grip isometric exercise (HG) before and 20 min following sublingual administration of nifedipine. CPT performed before nifedipine did not change coronary blood flow determined by the thermodilution technique, but increased coronary resistance (control 0.95±18 mm Hg/ml/min; CPT 1.17±0.30, P
