Ischemia induced during stress protocols for echocardiography or myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) indicates impaired coronary perfusion in the face of increased oxygen demand.
Methods: Isolated rat hearts with ischemia/reperfusion injury in Langendorff system were employed for examining the effect of total ginsenosides (TGS) on coronary perfusion flow (CPF).
Furthermore, the effect of rat calcitonin on coronary perfusion pressure and heart rate has not been studied and little is known on the effect of rat calcitonin on contractile force.
Early CPR, such as to restore coronary perfusion pressure and myocardial blood flow, delays onset of ischaemic myocardial injury and facilitates defibrillation (12).
5 not only unloads the heart but that can also increase coronary perfusion needed to provide oxygen to the heart itself.
Secondarily, IABP improves cardiac output, increases coronary perfusion pressures, increases systemic perfusion, reduces mitral regurgitation and reduces afterload, which will subsequently decrease left ventricular workload.
Buis goes on to state, "Chase Medical is deeply involved in, and committed to further innovative and unique product development projects which address the remaining challenges of beating heart surgery, including hemodynamic stability during cardiac manipulation, and optimal coronary perfusion during the surgical procedure.
