Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Medroxy progesterone acetate (MPA) was tried as a respiratory stimulant in 7 patients with chronic obstructive lung disease and respiratory failure; 7 other similar patients served as controls. A significant change in clinical status and a fall in pCO2 was noticed in the group administered MPA. No untoward effects were noted. More elaborate trials are needed to evaluate the drug further.
