The article discusses cardiac effects of insulin, glucose and potassium. Catheterization of the left ventricle was performed by the Seldinger technique. Oxygen consumption was determined by measuring ventilation with a spirometer and analyzing the expired gas with a Micro Scholander apparatus. Mixed venous blood was obtained from the pulmonary artery and arterial blood from the brachial artery. The left ventricular end diastolic pressure showed small but significant increases after the infusion of the mixture. A minimal increase in the mean pulmonary artery pressure was also recorded after the infusion.
