BACKGROUND 'Stone heart' resulting from ischemic contracture of the myocardium, precludes successful resuscitation from ventricular fibrillation (VF). We hypothesized that mild hypothermia might slow the progression to stone heart. METHODS Fourteen swine (27 ± 1 kg) were randomized to normothermia (group I; n=6) or hypothermia groups (group II; n=8). Mild(More)
We identified abnormalities in the vascular beta-adrenergic receptor (beta-AR) signaling pathway in heart failure after myocardial infarction (MI). To examine these abnormalities, we measured beta-AR-mediated hemodynamics, vascular reactivity, and the vascular beta-AR molecular signaling components in rats with heart failure after MI. Six weeks after MI,(More)
