Abstract

Lung function can be reduced not only by a non-selective beta-blocker but also by a selective beta1-receptor blocker. If both types of drug are without intrinsic sympathomimetic activity, the effect of the non-selective drug is more pronounced than that of a beta1-receptor selective drug under basal conditions. The effect of a beta2-receptor stimulating drug on the bronchi is inhibited by a non-selective drug, but much less by a selective beta1-receptor blocker. A selective beta1-receptor blocker can be used in asthmatics when it is combined with optimal anti-asthmatic therapy, while a non-selective drug is contra-indicated in patients with broncho-obstructive diseases. It is necessary to induce bronchodilatation (e.g. with a beta2-stimulator) in order to test whether or not a beta-blocker can be used in broncho-obstructive disease.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 11. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 February 2017.
All research outputs
#1,148,272
of 11,839,898 outputs
Outputs from Obstetrics & Gynecology
#1,098
of 5,697 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#48,009
of 326,623 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Obstetrics & Gynecology
#48
of 98 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,839,898 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 90th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 5,697 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.7. This one has done well, scoring higher than 80% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 326,623 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 98 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its contemporaries.
