Evidence implicating reactive oxygen species (ROS) in reperfusion-induced arrhythmias is accumulating rapidly [1,2]. However, surprisingly little is known about the effects of ROS on cardiac electrophysiology. Such knowledge would improve our understanding of reperfusion-induced arrhythmias. Photosensitizers and light are known to produce a variety of ROS. They might, therefore, be useful for investigating oxygen-mediated cell injury. To our knowledge, such an approach has not been used to… CONTINUE READING
