The increasing use of coronary infusates for the protection of the human heart drug ischemic cardiac arrest has placed great emphasis on the need for a rational and safe formulation of any infusion solution. Using a rat heart model of cardiopulmonary bypass and ischemic cardiac arrest, we have found magnesium to be a highly effective component of protective infusates which can be additive to hypothermia and other protective agents. However, the concentration of magnesium bears a complex relationship to the degree of protection, a fact which stresses the need for the establishment of the correct concentration for optimal protection.
