Effects of hyperkalaemia on the excitability of peripheral nerve.

An experimental animal model has been developed for the study of excitability change in peripheral nerve during limb ischaemia. This model has been used to investigate the effects of hyperkalaemia on the sequence of excitability change that occurs during cuff-induced limb ischaemia and in the post-ischaemic recovery period. The results lend support to the… (More)
