Abstract Burn injury results in disturbances of the cellular-extracellular partition of sodium and potassium. Increasing the intracellular calcium concentration from its normal value of 0·03mM or below (Schatzmann, 1969) to 0·0317mM by calcium loading of haemoglobin-free ghosts has been shown to inhibit Na-K-activated membrane ATPase (La Celle et al., 1973). This enzyme is responsible for the transport of sodium and potassium against a concentration gradient. Therefore the failure of the… CONTINUE READING
