Postischemic myocardial contractile dysfunction is in part mediated by the burst of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which occurs with the reintroduction of oxygen. We hypothesized that tissue oxygen tension modulates this ROS burst at reperfusion. After 20 min of global ischemia, isolated rat hearts were reperfused with temperature-controlled (37.4 degrees C) Krebs-Henseleit buffer saturated with one of three different O2 concentrations (95, 20, or 2%) for the first 5 min of reperfusion and then… CONTINUE READING
