Fig. 4. Suppression of peak frequency (PF) after the administration of 5°C saline in rats. (A) Decreased ratio of PF in high-amplitude pressure following the administration of 5°C saline. To quantify the decrease in high-amplitude pressure induced by 5°C saline, the ratio of contraction frequency before and after administration with a length of more than 8 mm was calculated as the %PF. *P < 0.05 vs room temperature. (B) The area under the curve (AUC) at high-amplitude pressure with 5°C saline. The AUC was calculated before and after drug administration using the lowest intraluminal pressure value as the baseline. There were no significant differences among the 3 groups. (C) The results of the peak pressure amplitude (PPA) at high-amplitude pressure with 5°C saline. The difference between PPA and the lowest intraluminal pressure was defined as PPA, and the ratio of PPA before and after medication was calculated as % PPA. There was no significant difference among the 3 groups (n = 5).
