Data are mean ± SEM. Intervention = administration of saline, dextrose, or N -acetylcysteine in the presence or absence of isoflurane.
* Significantly (P < 0.05) different from baseline.
† Significantly (P < 0.05) different from the respective value in control experiments.
CAO = coronary artery occlusion; CON = control; +dP/dtmax= maximal rate of increase of left ventricular pressure; HR = heart rate; HYP = hyperglycemia; ISO = isoflurane; LVSP and LVEDP = left ventricular systolic and end-diastolic pressures, respectively; MAP = mean aortic blood pressure; NAC =N -acetylcysteine.
