A study was made of the possibility of restoring the vital functions in dogs with experimental extensive myocardial infarction of the left ventricle, cause by preliminary ligation of the descending branch of the left coronary artery. As demonstrated, restoration of the cardiac activity with the aid of massage of the heart (direct and indirect), artificial respiration and defibrillation is quite possible at various stages of the development of infarction.
