AIM To study, for the first time, the effects of stunning on homeometric and heterometric autoregulation. METHODS AND RESULTS Ischaemia (15 min)/reperfusion (30 min) was induced in the isovolumic blood-perfused dog heart preparation. Heart rate elevations (n = 9) from 60 to 200 beats min-1, in steps of 20 beats min-1, promoted the same inotropic… CONTINUE READING
