Glucagon Glucagon is a single-chain pancreatic polypeptide that is an effective inotropic and chronotropic agent. Its mechanism of action is direct stimulation of myocardial glucagon receptors; these receptors, when stimulated, increase the formation of myocardial cAMP. The resultant effect is positive inotropy and, to a lesser degree, positive chronotropy. Glucagon is theoretically most effective after β blocker overdose, in which decreased β-adrenergic receptor activation leads to diminished cAMP production.

The physical examination also can provide valuable clues as to the particular toxin involved (Table 2A-6).
