The Bohr effect of the blood and the red cell hemolysates of adult and newborn humans, goats and kids, and sheep and lambs were determined and the physiological significance is discussed. Similar determinations were made on blood from an African elephant, yak, camel, Dybowski deer, and llama. The strong displacement to the right of the oxygen dissocia-tion(More)
Blood parameters concerning oxygen transport and relative organ weights of 11 Suncus etruscus and 13 Crocidura russula under light halothane anesthesia were investigated. Mean body weight of S. etruscus was 2.5 g and for C. russula was 9 g, hemoglobin concentration was 17.4 and 15.6 g/100 ml blood, hematocrit was 50 and 44%, red blood cells were 18 and 11 X(More)
Blood oxygen transport properties and organ weights of five bat species in the weight range between 4.8 and 150 g have been investigated and compared to four similar-size non-flying mammals. In addition allometric organ weight-body weight relations have been compiled for both groups. All bats had higher relative heart weights than the terrestrial mammals.(More)
functions uf blood uf the yak, llama, camel, Dybowski deer, and African elephant. Am. J. Physiol. 205(2): 331-336. I963*-Blood samples from a yak, llama, camel, deer, and African elephant were analyzed for oxygen capacity, Ccstandard bicarbonate " content, oxygen dissociation curve, and the magnitude of the Bohr and Haldane effects. These parameters of the(More)
