Answer

Beta1/Beta2 Adrenergic Agonists

When given systemically, isoproterenol stimulates beta receptors in the heart, which produces positive inotropic and chronotropic effects. This results in increased cardiac output.

Isoproterenol (Isuprel)

Isoproterenol has sympathomimetic effects; specifically, beta1- and beta2-adrenergic receptor agonist activity.
