1137 Altered Glucose Regulation Accompanying Asphyxia at Birth in the Rat


Birth asphyxia is a major cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality and produces dysfunction in many organ systems. To study effects on glucose metabolism, we developed an animal model of asphyxia at birth. Rat pups, delivered by hysterotomy at term and maintained in humidified chambers at 36°C, were subjected to hypoxia (H) Fi02 3-5% for 20 minutes… (More)
