OBJECTIVE: Post-resuscitation myocardial dysfunction is a major cause of fatality in patients receiving successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The mechanism of post-resuscitation myocardial dysfunction is largely unknown, although is generally considered related to ischemia occurring during cardiac arrest and resuscitation and/or reperfusion injury after restoration of circulation. A key mechanism responsible for reduced contractile reserves in chronic heart failure is impaired β-adrenergic receptor signaling. Thus, we hypothesized that β-adrenergic receptor signaling is markedly abnormal in the post-resuscitation period following cardiopulmonary resuscitation. METHODS: Male landrace domestic pigs were randomized into a sham group (anesthetized and instrumented, no ventricular fibrillation) or cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) group (ventricular fibrillation) (n=8 per group). Hemodynamic and echocardiographic data were recorded. β-adrenergic receptor signaling was assessed at 6h after the operation by measuring myocardial adenylate cyclase activity, β-adrenergic receptor density, and β-adrenergic receptor kinase expression. RESULTS: Left ventricular function in the CPR group was significantly decreased at 6h after restoration of spontaneous circulation. Basal and isoproterenol-stimulated adenylate cyclase activity was blunted in the CPR group compared with the sham group. Total β-AR density was significantly decreased in CPR group compared with the sham group. Myocardial β-adrenergic receptor kinase expression was 2.17-fold greater in the CPR group than the sham group. CONCLUSIONS: β- adrenergic receptor signaling is markedly impaired in the post-resuscitation period, which may be a mechanism of post-resuscitation myocardial dysfunction.
