Cardiac Output in Rats During the Development of Cardiac Hypertrophy
Cardiac output, reserve force of the heart, total peripheral resistance and weights of the heart and other organs were determined in normal rats, and in rats at different times after their aortas were narrowed just below the diaphragm. Although the output of the hypertrophied heart was normal, its reserve force was greater.
