Summary Using swimming stress to evaluate the effects of experimental conditions, the maximal oxygen consumption seems to be a preferable measurement to swim time to exhaustion. Mice swimming to exhaustion with 7% weight load in 36° water exhibited similar Vo2max values for their first and second exposures. However, swim time more than doubled for the second exposure. Almost no correlation existed between Vo2max and swim time. This suggests that swim time is dependent on several factors, both… Expand

New model of dynamic work for small laboratory animals
A new method of enforced continuous dynamic work for rats and mice is suggested, suitable for mass screening of compounds with adaptogenic properties and to study the mechanisms of increasing the endurance and working capacity of animals. Expand
