Abstract

The purpose of these studies is to illustrate that the time of drug administration in experimental animals subjected to coronary artery occlusion is an important influence on the myocardial distribution of the drug as well as its electrophysiologic and arrhythmogenic effects. Also, because several drugs have active metabolites, some studies must be done after oral administration. Finally, electrophysiologic testing to determine drug efficacy may give misieading results with some drugs.
