In the tropical fresh water fish, Synbranchus marmoratus, transition from water breathing to air breathing, induced by reduction of oxygen partial pressure (PO2) in the environmental water below 16 mmHg, causes a considerable rise in the arterial partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO2), from 5.6 to 26 mmHg on the average (half time of the rise between 2 and 6.5 h). The associated fall in arterial plasma pH by about 0.6 units is not compensated by an increase in plasma bicarbonate… CONTINUE READING
