IN THE experiments performed on the canine heart-lung preparation, Patterson, Piper, and Starling observed that when venous return was augmented, cardiac performance initially increased, but when venous return was elevated beyond a critical level, the performance progressively declined, i.e., there was a descending limb of the Starling curve.1-3 During the past 20 years a number of studies have been carried out in order to determine whether or not the human heart also exhibits a descending limb… CONTINUE READING
