Figure 2

Left ventricular contractility data. A. Preload recruitable stroke work (PRSW); B. end systolic elastance (Ees); C. arterial-ventricular coupling ratio (Ea/Ees); D. maximal acceleration of pressure in the cardiac cycle (dP/dtmax). * Significantly different from baseline (P ≤0.05). Significant difference between cooled animals and time matched normothermic controls (P ≤0.05).
