Transmembrane Potentials of the Normal and Hypothermic Human Heart
Transmembrane cardiac potentials from the human ventricles were recorded in 10 subjects during corrective cardiac surgery under normothermic or hypothermic anesthesia. The amplitude and shape of these transmembrane potentials are compared with simultaneously recorded electrocardiograms, and their relationships are discussed.
