Rats adapted to stress showed a decreased severity and incidence of cardiac arrhythmias induced by epinephrine, and these effects of adaptation were abolished by naloxone. It is suggested that stress adaptation mitigates arrhythmia by activating the endogenous opioid system and stimulating the μ-opiate receptors.
