Table 2 Body weight and heart weight/body weight ratio of normal and hypertrophic heart rats

From: Remote preconditioning in normal and hypertrophic rat hearts

  Normal heart rats n = 14 Hypertrophic heart rats n = 14 p
Body weight 219.8 ± 3.079 grams 222.9 ± 2.548 grams 0.444
Heart weight/body weight 0.004301 ± 0.0001466 0.006289 ± 0.0002148 < 0.0001*
  1. Body weight did not differ between normal and hypertrophic heart rats, while heart weight/body weight ratio was considerably different. Values are expressed as the mean ± SEM. The asterisk (*) means statistically significant, p < 0.05.
