Possible Interaction: Potassium and Dehydroemetine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

3 Increasing the potassium concentration of the bathing medium increased the inhibitory effect of dehydroemetine on the atria, while decreasing the potassium concentration antagonized the effect of dehydroemetine.
5 In the low, as in the normal sodium medium, the inhibitory effect of dehydroemetine was more marked the higher the potassium concentration of the bathing medium.
7 On the basis of the foregoing it was suggested that dehydroemetine acts by increasing the permeability of the myocardial cell membrane to potassium thereby leading to the accumulation of potassium in the extracellular space.
