Peter Stewart criticized the traditional theory of the acid-base status by Henderson-Hasselbalch as too simple and incomplete. He developed a new model with 3 independent variables: (1) pCO2, (2) SID (strong ion difference) and (3) Atot (Acid total). In healthy and ill dogs the diagnostic usefulness of both acid-base models were compared. This study(More)
Na absorption across the cornified, multilayered, and squamous rumen epithelium is mediated by electrogenic amiloride-insensitive transport and by electroneutral Na transport. High concentrations of amiloride (>100 μM) inhibit Na transport, indicating Na(+)/H(+) exchange (NHE) activity. The underlying NHE isoform for transepithelial Na absorption was(More)
OBJECTIVES Atropine sulphate, a competitive antagonist of acetylcholine (ACh) at muscarinic receptors, was first isolated from Atropa belladonna, one of the most used and best known homeopathic medicines. It has been suggested that high potencies of homeopathic atropine sulphate might have an influence on ACh-induced contraction of smooth muscles. The aim(More)
BACKGROUND Chlamydia psittaci (Cp) is a respiratory pathogen capable of inducing acute pulmonary zoonotic disease (psittacosis) or persistent infection. To elucidate the pathogenesis of this infection, a translational large animal model was recently introduced by our group. This study aims at quantifying and differentiating pulmonary dysfunction and(More)
UNLABELLED The intensity of the response to acid-base parameters in relation to the age after a defined acid load was studied in calves. 32 clinically healthy calves (age: 4-104 days) were infused with 5M NH4Cl solution (dose: 1.0 ml/kg) through a permanent intravenous catheter. Before (0 hrs) and after starting the infusion (2, 4, 6, 8 and 24 hrs) venous(More)
Firstly, the numbers in the headings of the additional files have been reversed. In Additional file 2, cell A1 should read “Additional file 2: Concentrations of plasma glucose, L‐lactate, sodium, potassium, chloride, and calculated strong ion difference (SID)” rather than “Additional file 3: Concentrations of plasma glucose, L‐lactate, sodium, potassium,(More)

The effect of different CO2-stunning on the corneal reflex response and blood parameters in (arterio-venous) killing blood was investigated in n = 614 slaughter pigs (carcass weight = 92-94 kg) at two different abattoirs. CO2-anaesthesia lead to remarkable decrease of PO2 (hypoxaemia), increase of PCO2 (hypercapnia), decrease of pH (respiratory acidosis)(More)
Blood gas analysis is useful to obtain information about acid-base state and gas exchange of the lung. Interpretation is based on the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation. This approach has its limitations especially in interpretation of complex disturbances of acid-base status and has been complemented by base excess and anion gap. Peter Stewart described a(More)
