The forearm by cuff occlusion) protect the heart against ischemia/reperfusion injury. Both these phenomena are mediated by autonomic pathways and by adenosine, bradykinin, and calcitonin gene-related peptide. The exact neural pathways, which also include the afferent sensory neuron and parasympathetic systems, remain unclear; but remote preconditioning could also involve interactions between multiple redundant signaling pathways. Other forms of persistent but potentially reversible cardiac dysfunction are myocardial stunning and hibernation.

Within the first few minutes of ischemia, the myocardial content of norepinephrine is moderate; whereas after approximately 20 min, it increases dramatically, reaching up to 1000 times its concentration in blood. This also causes a rise in plasma norepinephrine concentration, independently of the parallel activation of stress response (see Chap. 3). The autonomic activation that occurs during ischemia is partially cardioprotective (see the following paragraphs). However, it also causes a redistribution of coronary flow toward the epicardium (with possible increased subendocardial ischemia), direct cellular injury, an electrical excitatory effect on myocytes, and direct pro-thrombogenic and endothelial activator effects.
