The effects of 0.5 mg/1 diazepam on the cardio and respiratory system of the eel was studied. It has been confirmed that the major effect of diazepam appeared during the first 30 minutes, there after the bioelectrical activity of the heart and respiratory rate tend to return to their normal, except for a slight disturbance in the ventricular cardiac muscle repolarization.
