Abstract:

Under the conditions of these experiments constant coronary blood flow in a beating, non-perfusing heart the administration of 0.6 mgkg of S. typhosa endotoxin directly into the coronary arteries resulted in a progressive decrease in coronary vascular resistance and total peripheral resistance. The observed decreases in coronary vascular and total peripheral resistances appeared to be due to active vasodilation.
