Using Doppler echocardiography and electrocardiography, we characterized cardiac hemodynamics, timing, and electromechanical function, and examined the effects of ventricular hypertrophy on systolic function in anesthetized rainbow trout. Atrial filling (D(SA)), ventricular filling (D(AV)), and ventricular ejection (D(VB)) accounted for 40-77, 13-27, and 22-41% of the cardiac cycle, respectively. Ventricular ejection occurred entirely during atrial filling and ended by the time the QT interval… CONTINUE READING
