From the authors: “Our results support our hypothesis that cardiac maturation is perturbed in a mouse model of chronic perinatal hypoxia. Chronic perinatal hypoxia altered both the electrophysiologic substrate and the contractile apparatus.” 

This study is highlighted as one of May’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
