Milrinone IV Uses and How to Use

  • Uses

    This medication is used for the short-term treatment of heart failure. It works by making your heart beat stronger and by relaxing certain blood vessels so that the amount of blood that is pumped from the heart is increased. This effect may help with symptoms of heart failure (such as shortness of breath, tiredness).

    How To Use

    This medication is given by injection into a vein by a health care professional. It is usually first given as a slow injection (over 10 minutes) and then given as a continuous infusion thereafter.

    Dosage is based on your medical condition, weight, and response to treatment.
