biomedical emphasis Jul 22, 2007
The book's articles given a detailed summary of research done up to 1995 on K channels in cells. Mostly from a biomedical viewpoint. Especially in the context of applications to people suffering heart attacks. For example, several papers describe the now well known phenomena where after a heart attack, if the patient survives, K intercellular concentrations are elevated in the heart. The extra K was released from cells, which means that they are now deficient. The implications for future optimal functioning of those cells is not good. Hence, papers explore why this is so, and how to possibly treat this.
