The effect of 1 hour of myocardial ischemia on the function of the stimulatory guanine-nucleotide-binding protein Gs was examined. This study follows our recent finding that myocardial ischemia increases the density of beta-adrenoreceptors in a conscious canine model while having the opposite effect on the activity of adenylate cyclase. Coronary artery(More)
To determine the effects of acetylcholine on the coronary bed in the baboon and whether the effects preceded or followed the action of acetylcholine on ventricular function, eight adult baboons (Papio anubis) were instrumented to measure left ventricular (LV) and mean arterial pressures, LV dP/dt, regional myocardial function, and coronary blood flow.(More)
These data indicate that through the reduction in exercise time and recruitment of trained subjects, the exercising muscle in the human dynamic knee-extension model can reach even higher work rates, VO2, and Q than previously reported (Andersen & Saltin, 1985; Andersen et al., 1985; Rowell et al., 1986). Despite these high muscle Q, the achievement of high(More)
Joint crepitation after chamber air dives to 188 fsw. Undersea Biomed. Res. 4(1):89-94.-Joint crepitation was observed in all subjects (8) who were decompressed from 188 fsw (gauge) dry chamber air dives with a bottom time of 45 min. Crepitation was elicited by bending a joint as far as comfortably possible, and intensity of the sound was rated on a scale(More)
A total of 300 children aged five years and under, referred for routine EEG investigations, were included in this study. It was possible to obtain recordings during natural sleep in 250 of the 300 children, using stick-on electrodes. Of the 250 with natural-sleep recordings, 110 children had normal records both awake and asleep. In 73 cases the awake record(More)
