Stretch-induced increase in resting metabolism of isolated papillary muscle.

Abstract

A mathematical model of oxygen diffusion into quiescent papillary muscles in vitro is developed. The model incorporates a continuous sigmoidal function relating the rate of oxygen consumption and the partial pressure of oxygen within the tissue. The behavior of the model is explored over a wide range of external oxygen partial pressures, oxygen consumption… (More)
