Oxygen consumption and motility of mechanically unloaded myocardial slices.

Abstract

We have recently established a new measurement system of myocardial O2 consumption per min (mVO2) of mechanically unloaded rat left ventricular (LV) slices (Yasuhara et al.: Am. J. Physiol. 270: H1063-H1070, 1996). Using this system, we have revealed that an increment in O2 consumption (delta mVO2) by electrical stimulation primarily represents mVO2 for Ca2… (More)
