Alternans of action potential duration (APD) has been shown to be a precursor of ventricular fibrillation in ischaemic myocardium. We postulated that magnitude of alternans of APD during ischaemia depends not only on the severity of ischaemia but also on disturbed beat-to-beat restitution of APD. Monophasic action potentials were recorded simultaneously from right (RV) and left ventricular (LV) epicardial sites of isolated rabbit hearts. The inter-beat time courses of APD recovery were… CONTINUE READING
