Very little is known about the early development of cardiorespiratory regulatory mechanisms in newly hatched amphibian larvae. We tested whether early cardiovascular responses to hypoxia reflect local-flow regulation in tissues and whether regulation of ventilation would improve during larval development. Cardiac output was calculated from heart rate and stroke volume, and buccal pumping rate was measured at 19° -21° C for Xenopus laevis larvae between Nieuwkoop and Faber stages 44 (just after… CONTINUE READING
