    Background: The "warm up" effect in angina may represent ischaemic preconditioning, which is mediated by adenosine A1 receptors in most models. Objective: To investigate the effect of a selective A1 agonist, GR79236 (GlaxoSmithKline), on exercise induced angina and ischaemic left ventricular...

    Background Recent studies showed that hyperglycaemia (HG) blocks anaesthetic-induced preconditioning. The influence of HG on anaesthetic-induced postconditioning (post) has not yet been determined. We investigated whether sevoflurane (Sevo)-induced postconditioning is blocked by HG and whether...
