【摘要】：[Objectives] To explore the effects of Danqu capsules(the prescription of Lei Zhongyi, the master of traditional Chinese medicine for the syndrome of intermingling of phlegm and static blood of coronary heart disease) on arterial blood pressure, heart rate and myocardial tension time index in rats. [Methods] A total of 50 SD rats, weighing(300±20) g, were randomly and evenly divided into Danqu capsule observation groups(low, middle and high-dose groups) and control groups(saline group and captopril group). Under anesthesia, the rats in each group were administered with 0.6, 1.2 and 2.4 g/kg of Danqu capsule suspension, 1 mL/100 g of saline and 10 mg/kg of captopril, respectively through duodena, and their systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, mean arterial pressure, pulse pressure difference and heart rate were measured and recorded by RM6240 multi-channel physiological signal acquisition and processing system before administration, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90 and 120 min after the administration, respectively, and the myocardial tension time index was calculated. [Results] Compared with the saline group, the systolic, diastolic and mean pressure reduced 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 90 and 120 min after the administration, and the pulse pressure difference did not change significantly in the Danqu capsule groups(low, middle and high-dose groups), and the heart rate slowed down and the myocardial tension time index reduced in the high-dose Danqu capsule group. Compared with the captopril group, the Danqu capsule groups showed similar blood pressure-reducing effect. [Conclusions]Danqu capsules have obvious effect of lowering blood pressure and myocardial tension time index. High-dose Danqu capsules has the effect of slowing down the heart rate. The blood pressure-lowering effect of Danqu capsules shows a dose-dependent manner. Clinically, they can be used in patients with coronary heart diseases and hypertension, suggesting that they should be used with caution in patients with hypotension.
