BACKGROUND: Ventricular fibrillation has deleterious metabolic and functional consequences for the heart. This study had two purposes: first, to define the effects of ventricular fibrillation during hypoxia on energy metabolism and accumulation of intracellular Na+ and, second, to test whether the occurrence of ventricular fibrillation can be predicted from functional or metabolic parameters. METHODS AND RESULTS: Isolated isovolumic rat hearts were perfused with oxygenated Krebs-Henseleit buf...Expand abstract
