Electromyographic changes in the isolated rat diaphragm during the development of fatigue

Abstract

To investigate whether the power spectrum of the electromyogram of a fatiguing muscle can be used to infer the degree to which the muscle is fatigued, we recorded isometric tension and two monopolar electromyograms from eight isolated rat diaphragm preparations suspended in an organ bath containing a balanced salt solution. Each preparation was excited with… (More)
