Abstract

1. 1. Concealed conduction (incomplete penetration of the atrioventricular node) was observed in 27 of 79 instances of potassium-induced atrioventricular block in dogs. 2. 2. This phenomenon can be explained by the known effects of potassium on the resting membrane potential and on the speed of the rise and the amplitude of action potential.
