The extracellular space (ECS) of muscle from each ventricle of the heart (RV and LV), the atria, diaphragm, and quadriceps was estimated in the anesthetized rabbit from the distribution volumes of [14C]insulin, [14C]sucrose, [51Cr]EDTA, and C1--. Whole-tissue electrolytes were measured and intracellular electrolytes calculated. The ECS of the tissues varied, increasing in the order quadriceps less than LV less than RV less than atria. The volume of distribution of [14C]inulin was always less… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Tissue spaces in rat heart, liver, and skeletal muscle in vivo.
TLDR
The tracer method used in this study provides a quantitative assessment of water distribution in tissues of nonnephrectomized rats that has applications for calculation of tissue ion and metabolite concentrations, gradients, and fluxes under normal and pathophysiological conditions.
Verapamil-sensitive sodium uptake in the adult rat heart.
Muscle capillary permeability for [14C]inulin and [51Cr]EDTA in human forearm.
TLDR
Capillary permeability of [14C]inulin and [51Cr]EDTA was examined in human forearm in five healthy, subjects by indicator diffusion technique and it points to an 'equivalent pore radius estimate' of about 160 A in human muscle capillaries.
Tissue spaces in rat heart, liver, and skeletal muscle in vivo.
TLDR
The tracer method used in this study provides a quantitative assessment of water distribution in tissues of nonnephrectomized rats that has applications for calculation of tissue ion and metabolite concentrations, gradients, and fluxes under normal and pathophysiological conditions.
Intracellular chloride activity in mammalian ventricular muscle.
TLDR
The conclusion that chloride is not passively distributed is supported by the observation that the increase in high potassium media was smaller than predicted, and in contrast to findings in papillary muscle, frog sartorius muscle was consistent with passive distribution.
Changes in Interstitial Volume and Masses of Albumin and IgG in Rabbit Skin and Skeletal Muscle after Saline Volume Loading
TLDR
Acute saline expansion resulted in a shift of plasma proteins from plasma to the extravascular space of skin and skeletal muscle, and the excluded volume fraction for albumin decreased in both tissues and for IgG decreased in muscle.
Intracellular sodium activity and its regulation in guinea‐pig atrial myocardium.
TLDR
The regulation of cellular Na+ homeostasis in atrial muscle appears to be closer to the limits of its capacity than in ventricle, explaining the higher sensitivity of the atrium to interventions which impede Na+ pump activity.

Tissue water and electrolytes in an isolated perfused rat's heart preparation.
TLDR
Chloride is not a satisfactory measure of extracellular space in the isolated perfused rat heart and carbon-14 labeled inulin-carboxylic acid (ICA) appears to be a satisfactory marker for extacellular space.
Distribution of Ions and Water between Tissue Compartments in the Perfused Left Ventricle of the Rat Heart
TLDR
Observations indicate that the division of mammalian heart muscle into tissue compartments is more complex than conventionally assumed, and are inconsistent with the usual assumption that cardiac cellular water is homogeneous.

TLDR
In frog skeletal muscle and invertebrate muscle, analysis has shown that the intracellular concentration of chloride is of the value expected if the ions were passively distributed around the resting membrane potential, and in cardiac muscle, there is less evidence on the chloride distribution.

Calculation of intracellular pH from the distribution of 5,5-dimethyl-2,4-oxazolidinedione (DMO); application to skeletal muscle of the dog.
TLDR
There is a great deal of evidence that membranes of animal and plant cells in general are characterized by free permeability to the undissociated forms of weak organic acids and bases and by impermea.
Carbon dioxide dissociation curve and buffer capacity of dog heart muscle.
TLDR
In the dog, heart muscle is at least as well buffered against the pH-lowering effect of increasing CO2 tension as is skeletal muscle and is more effectively buffered than has previously been realized.
