Few studies report simultaneous electrical and mechanical recordings from the epicardium of intact beating hearts in situ during ischaemia. We use suction to apply transducers and electrodes to areas of the epicardium. This interferes little with its behaviour and allows: i) free mobility over the surface; ii) simultaneous tridirectional length changes to be recorded and summed for an overall impression of mechanical behaviour, iii) detection of changes in direction of movement; iv… CONTINUE READING
