Myocardial survival and function under conditions of anoxia
Weil, Daniel B.
MetadataShow full item record
Rat heart muscle was subjected to quantitated conditions of anoxia achieved by extracting oxygen from Ringer's solution under vacuum and heat. Special Van Slyke analyses measured the amount of oxygen remaining in solution after the extraction procedures had been carried out. Myocardial response to anoxia was studied in terms of survival, or the ability of the heart tissue to remain alive during anoxia with resumption of function when placed in an oxygenated environment, and in terms of function, or the ability of heart muscle to contract during anoxia [TRUNCATED]
