Abstract

We evaluated the effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition (quinapril) on cardiopulmonary baroreflex sensitivity in 30 patients with uncomplicated myocardial infarction (quinapril group, 15 patients; placebo group, 15 patients) at 5 and 10 days after the onset of myocardial infarction. This study indicates that quinapril improved cardiopulmonary baroreflex and thus reduced sympathetic outflow in patients with acute myocardial infarction.
