Wie rasch ermüdet der Nerv?

Zbl. med. Wiss., 22, 65-68, 1884.

Über die Beziehung zwischen Reizung und Erregung im Tetanus.

Ber. Akad. Wiss. St. Petersburg, 54, 96-, Tipografīi︢a Imperatorskoǐ akademīi Nauk, 1886.

One mechanism that has been implicated in the origin of arrhythmias is the Wedensky effect. This was first described in neuromuscular studies by Wedensky as a prolonged lowered threshold of excitability induced by a strong stimulus (1886). See Castellanos, Lemberg, Johnson, Berkovits, "The Wedensky effect in the human heart," Brit. Heart. J., 28 (1966) 276-283.
