The effect of vagal afferent signaling on cardioinhibition has been well known for over 130 years. Both experimental and clinical studies have demonstrated not only the potential adverse effect of unrestrained sympathoexcitation in high risk patients with ischemic heart disease but the potential for cardioprotection by programmed vagal activity. The… (More)
