Abstract We studied the effects of HCI-induced metabolic acidaemia on cardiac output, contractile function, myocardial blood flow, and myocardial oxygen consumption in nine unanaesthetized newborn lambs. Through a left thoracotomy, catheters were placed in the aorta, left atrium and coronary sinus. A pressure transducer was placed in the left ventricle. Three to four days after surgery, we measured cardiac output, dP/dt, left ventricular end diastolic and aortic mean blood pressures, heart rate, aortic and coronary sinus blood oxygen contents, and left ventricular myocardial blood flow during a control period, during metabolic acidaemia, and after the aortic pH was restored to normal. We calculated systemic vascular resistance, myocardial oxygen consumption and left ventricular work. Acidaemia was associated with reduction in cardiac output, maximal dP/dt, and aortic mean blood pressure. Left ventricular end diastolic pressure and systemic vascular resistance increased, and heart rate did not change significantly. The reduction in myocardial blood flow and oxygen consumption was accompanied by fall in cardiac work. Cardiac output returned to control levels after the pH had been normalized but maximal dP/dt was incompletely restored. Myocardial blood flow and oxygen consumption increased beyond control levels. This study demonstrates that HCI-induced metabolic acidaemia in conscious newborn lambs is associated with a reduction in cardiac output which could have been mediated by the reduction in contractile function and/or the increase in systemic vascular resistance. The decreases in myocardial blood flow and oxygen consumption appear to reflect diminished cardiac work. The restoration of a normal cardiac output after normalization of the pH appears to have resulted from the increases in heart rate and left ventricular filling pressures in conjunction with an incomplete restoration of contractile function.
