Blood samples were collected by microhematocrit tube from posterior medial margin of the shaved, but otherwise untreated, canine ear.

The arterialized nature of capillary blood from the canine ear was demonstrated under various degrees of chemical restraint and during conditions of extreme hypoxic acidosis to hyperventilatory alkalosis.
