Introduction:. Previous studne haw demonstrated (he rapid lots of myocaroW creaane phosphate (CP) with the onset of ventneUar fibriation (VF), but a more gradual toss of adenoone triphoaphata (ATP) .It Is undear the tow (tow generated by eartyreeuacrtaoonfU CPR) is sufficient to regenerate nryocanial high-energy phoaphate (HEP) stores andtor protect against further losses. Methods: To characterize the changes In myocardal HEP'S during low-flow reperfusion of VF, six swine (21±3 kg) received 10 min of non-perfused VF, Mowed by cardnpuknonary bypass reperfusion of 30-40 rnVkgMw) for up to 120 max MyocaroU creatine phosphate (CP) and adenine tiphoaphato (ATP) ware determined at baseline and parioofcafty during VF w#i "P NMR spectrasoopy n mo using a large bore 4.7 Testa magnat Öfter cotected data indudect coronary perfusion pressure (CPP mean aortic pressure - mean right atrial pressure) and lactate flux (LFLUX=artarial - canfac vein lactato) Results: Hernodynamic and HEP data are summarized below (meantSO): Baseline 15mnVF 3T>60rrinVF 60-90 min VF 90-120 rrin VF :PP(rnmHgK 84.3±20.5 48.2±9.6 39.2±13.4 324±12.2 26.fetft2 JLUX 0.24±0.29 -0.66±1.14 -0.89±2.13 -0.07±1.48 0.15±1.46 (mmoM.)
