Aortic peak flow velocity as an index of myocardial contractility in the conscious rat.

Abstract

The present studies were conducted in conscious, instrumented rats to evaluate measurements of aortic peak flow velocity (PFV) as an index of myocardial contractility. Because our previous studies had characterized/verified procedures to determine pressure-derived indices of contractile function in the anesthetized, ventilated, open-chest rat, we first… (More)
