Electrocardiographic Alterations Produced by an Increase in Plasma pH, Bicarbonate and Sodium as Compared with Those Seen with a Decrease in Potassium
The effects of an increase in plasma pH, bicarbonate and sodium on the electrocardiogram of the normal dog have been compared with those produced by a decrease in plasma potassium. The electrocardiographic alterations in these experimentally induced situations were found to be similar in form and progression.
