Propranolol introduced by a cut-end method into atrial trabeculae evoked negative inotropic response without any significant changes in basic electrical parameters. This effect was resistant to noradrenaline but not to dibutyryl cAMP. These results suggest that existence of intracellular beta adrenoreceptors involved in the control of the contraction.
A strip of tissue cut from the sinus node, 0.5 mm wide, was studied in a sucrose gap chamber. With the gap width of 0.6--1.5 mm the 2 ends of the preparation showed nonsynchronous activity. Synchronization could be re-established by a shunt resistor, 15--100 k omega, connected across the gap, suggesting that synchronous firing of the sinus node requires(More)
The effects of intracellular application of noradrenaline, acetylcholine, cAMP and cGMP were studied in the sinus-node of the rabbit. Noradrenaline and acetylcholine were without effect on electrical activity. In about one third of cases, cAMP increased, and cGMP decreased the slope of slow depolarization. These results suggest that adrenergic as well as(More)
In the last years the occurrence of type 2 diabetes mellitus has rapidly increased. The presence of cardiovascular complications, retinopathy, nephropathy and neuropathy are the results of delayed diagnosis. In the year 2004, in the Internal Diseases Depertment in Dabrowa Tarnowska, type 2 diabetes mellitus was diagnosed for the first time in 62 patients.(More)
In 52 patients treated in Internal Diseases Depertment of the hospital in Dabrowa Tarnowska because of other diseases, the chronic renal failure was primary diagnosed. In 11 of patients diabetes t 2 was also for the first time detected. 80% of patients was over 70 years. Mild hypertension was present in 23% persons, moderate in 21%, and in 27% severe(More)
In the year 2004 there were 2515 patients hospitalysed in the Internal Diseases Department in Dabrowa Tarnowska. In this group 670 of persons suffered from diabetes mellitus t 2. In more than 62 patients the diabetes was detected coincidentally during hospitalization on account of other diseases. Analysed was the occurrence of other risk factors of(More)
Dibutyryl cGMP, like acetylcholine, shortens and reduces repolarization and overshoot of the action potential, slightly hyperpolarizes the cell and decreases the force of the contraction in the atrial working muscle. It suggests that cGMP may mediate the action of acetylcholine in the atrial working fibres.
Cyclic GMP was applied to the rabbit right auricle by a cut-end method. The nucleotide decreased the spontaneous rate, hyperpolarized the cell membrane and reduced the amplitude and the slow component of the action potential. It also decreased the force of contraction. These results suggest that cGMP may be the mediator of the action of acetylcholine in the(More)
Trans-gap application of noradrenaline or acetylcholine evoked pronounced inotropic but no chronotropic effects in spontaneously active rabbit auricle preparations. These results suggest the existence of intracellular receptors, both adrenergic and cholinergic, which were involved in the control of auricular contraction.
