Oxygen consumption and blood lactate concentration were measured in embryos (days 17-20) and chicks (days 0-7) in air and in 7-8% O2. The specific oxygen consumption in air increased up to day 4 after hatching. In 7-8% O2, the consumption decreased for all ages. The reduction was largest in the embryo (19% of normal) and smallest in the newly hatched chick (78% of normal). Blood lactate concentration increased markedly during exposure to 7-8% O2 at all ages. Although the embryo exhibited the… CONTINUE READING
