Mechanism of heart-rate acceleration caused by stimulation of vagal centers in the frog
- 137 Downloads
The mechanism by which heart rate is increased upon stimulation of vagal centers is studied using frog heart preparations perfused with Ringer—Locke solution containing atropine and/or benzohexonium. Atropine stimulates vagus-induced heart-rate acceleration in dilutions of 10−6 and 10−5 g/ml. In a dilution of 10−4 g/ml both atropine and benzohexonium abolish vagal tachycardia. Rausedyl (3–4 injections, 5 mg/kg, at 18–20-h interval) prevents tachycardia. Stimulation of both halves of the medulla oblongata increases heart rate to a greater extent than stimulation of one half.
