Augmentation of vagal tone increases ventricular fibrillation threshold (VFT) under nonischemic and ischemic conditions and protects against spontaneous ventricular fibrillation during experimental myocardial infarction. The purpose of this study was to identify the anatomic pathways responsible for this cholinergically-mediated enhanced electrical… CONTINUE READING
