This study analyzed the effect of a single dose of a rapidly acting digitalis preparation on hemodynamic parameters during continuing ventricular tachycardia and on the time required for "hemodynamic recovery" from congestive circulatory failure induced by chronic rapid electrical stimulation of the ventricles of intact dogs. Stimulation electrodes were attached to the right ventricles; chronic indwelling catheters were placed in the aorta, pulmonary artery, and right and left atria to permit determination of cardiac output, circulation time, pressures and various abstracted parameters. Congestive failure was induced in nine animals by stimulation rates ranging from 280 to 310 beats/min for an
