1. The load bearing capacity during relaxation of ventricular cardiac muscle from various animal species was investigated. 2. The effect of load on the time course of relaxation was analysed either by comparing afterloaded contractions against various loads or by imposing abrupt alterations in load (load clamps). 3. In heart muscle from the mammalian species studied relaxation was sensitive to loading conditions, whereas in frog heart muscle relaxation was largely independent of the loading… CONTINUE READING
