It is important to know the species differences when data from animal experiments are interpreted for human application. This in vitro study focused on the effects of heat, a major concern in mechanically actuated artificial heart development, on the physiology of human and calf erythrocytes (RBC). RBC from calves and healthy human donors were incubated at(More)
Diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker, is known to suppress platelet function in vitro. However, its in vivo effects on platelets have been controversial. The effect of diltiazem on both human and calf platelets was studied using impedance whole-blood aggregometry. In vitro, platelet aggregation induced by ADP (5 microM) or collagen (1 micrograms/ml) was(More)
