A 23-year-old male asked:
What do h2 receptors in the heart do?

H2 receptors: This is an excellent question. After reviewing the literature, I can say that I don't think we really know. There are various things possible that they do but a solid study with consistent results other than in rats or pigs, I couldn't find.
