Abstract:

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
