Drug Absorption | Influence of CPB and Mini CPB to the Absorption of the Metoprolol

Drug Absorption research study

What is the primary objective of this study?

Influence of perfusion, miniperfusion and off pump coronary artery bypass grafting to the absorbtion of metoprolol postoperatively, hypothesis in that miniperfusion and off pump surgery does not decrease absorbtion of the metoprolol compared to conventional pefusion.

Who is eligible to participate?

Inclusion Criteria: elective CABG patient - Exclusion Criteria: contraindication to metoprolol -

Study Interventions

Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.

Study Arms

Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.
