Figure 3: Serial RV Hemodynamic Data

BO1 caused significant reduction in the (A) maximum rate of isovolumic contraction (dP/dtmax) and (B) stroke volume (SV) and (C) increases in end-diastolic pressure (EDP) and (D) the time constant of diastolic relaxation (Tau). *p < 0.05 versus BL1. Cumulative ischemic dysfunction measured according to dP/dtmax after a second balloon occlusion was observed. **p < 0.05 versus BO1. There was no significant difference in any right ventricular index between GLP-1 and control saline. Mean ± SEM. Compared by using Student’s t-test. GLP-1, n = 11; control, n = 13.
