EFFECT OF SODIUM, POTASSIUM, CALCIUM, AND MAGNESIUM UPON THE RESISTANCE TO BLOOD FLOW THROUGH THE CORONARY VASCULAR BED OF THE DOG
ARMY MEDICAL RESEARCH LAB FORT KNOX KY
Pagination or Media Count:
The local effects of the major cations upon the coronary vascular resistance was studied in the beating, non-perfusing dog heart. Coronary vascular resistance actively decreased as a function of the infusion rate of isotonic solutions of KCl, MgCl2, and MgSO4 and actively increased as a function of the infusion rate of an isotonic solution of CaCl2. Isotonic NaCl had no effect. Author
