Levosimendan prevents bronchoconstriction and adverse respiratory tissue mechanical changes in rabbits

Levosimendan has a calcium-sensitizing effect in the myocardium and opens adenosine-triphosphate-sensitive potassium channels (KATP) in vascular smooth muscle. Since airway smooth muscle also expresses KATP, we characterized the protective potential of levosimendan against increased airway and respi...
