The oxgen supply of the heart depends on the proportion between the mount of oxygen consumed by the cardiac cell and that offered to the cardiac cell. Since, under normal conditions, the cornary arteriovenous difference is considerably high, the heart is apparently not able to increase its oxygen supply to any appreciable extent by raising the oxygen extraction from the blood (l). Thus, the dominant factor affecting the supply of oxygen to cardiac sturctures is governed by the type and overall capacity of the cardiac terminal vascular bed.
