In conclusion, there are two phases of ischemic preconditioning against stunning: an early phase (which begins within minutes) and a late phase (which begins after >6 h). These two phases have different pathophysiology and probably different mechanisms. The early phase is some-what controversial, but most of the discrepancies can be explained by differences… CONTINUE READING
