The importance of single components of ischemia including hypoxia, lactic acidosis, high potassium, and sympathetic stimulation to the spontaneous occurrence of ventricular arrhythmias was studied in chloralose-anesthetized cats using systemic and local intracoronary administration. Hypoxia and acidosis provoked no spontaneous arrhythmias regardless of(More)
