The cardiopulmonary effects of dorsal recumbency were studied in awake cows restrained for surgical correction of left displaced abomasum. During the recumbent period, PaO2, PaCO2, arterial pH, and base excess values were significantly decreased. Heart rate, respiratory rate, blood hemoglobin concentrations, and rectal temperature increased significantly.
