LABORATORY INVESTIGATION CONTRACTI:LITY Alternating contractility in pulsus alternans studied in the isolated canine heart

Abstract

We examined pulsus alternans in seven isolated, perfused canine left ventricles ejecting into a simulated arterial impedance. Left ventricular pressure-volume loops were measured during pulsus alternans while filling-source pressure was lowered. In all cases two distinct linear end-systolic pressure-volume relationships (ESPVRs) were noted for the strong… (More)
