Changes in atrial and ventricular refractoriness and in atrioventricular nodal conduction produced by combinations of vagal and sympathetic stimulation that result in a constant spontaneous sinus cycle length.

Abstract

The vagal nerves modulate adrenergic effects on sinus cycle length, atrioventricular (AV) nodal conduction, and refractoriness of atria and ventricles. We tested whether varying levels of vagal-sympathetic input could yield the same spontaneous sinus cycle length but also alter effective refractory periods of the right atrium, right ventricle, and left… (More)
