Demonstration of an increased bronchial responsiveness in preschool children may support the diagnosis of asthma. Most young children cannot perform routine lung function tests. Transcutaneous PO2 (PtcO2) measurement has been applied successfully in young children, and changes in PtcO2 have been shown to correlate well with changes in forced expiratory… (More)
The effect of tetracaine on the ionic current in enzymatically dissociated single guinea-pig ventricular cells was studied using a two micro-electrode voltage-clamp technique. The myocytes were pre-incubated with Cs+ and the experiments were performed at room temperature in order to reduce the contribution of the delayed outward current. Tetracaine… (More)
The mechanism of the shortening of the cardiac action potential by cyanide was studied in guinea-pig ventricular myocytes using a two micro-electrode voltage clamp technique. It is shown that the shortening can be counteracted by glucose and is due to a marked increase in K conductance.
