Abstract

THE cardiac glycosides have been shown to be specific inhibitors of active cation transport in a wide variety of tissues1–4. The specificity of this inhibition was first demonstrated by Schatzmann, who found that these glycosides blocked sodium extrusion from cold-stored red cells without affecting either lactate production or oxygen consumption4.
