Freshly drawn heparinized canine whole blood was equilibrated in vitro (paraffin lined vessels) at 38.1°C with a normal pulmonary atomosphere saturated with water vapor. It was then tagged by mixing with a small amount of plasma containing dextrose and radioactive KC1. The potassium content of the resulting plasma was thus raised by not more than 3% of the normal and the blood sugar to about 400 mg%. By this procedure cells were maintained in a healthy state for periods up to 10 hours as shown… CONTINUE READING
