Metabolic, respiratory and haematological parameters were investigated for the Little Pocket mouse during circadian torpor cycles. The rate of O2 consumption decreased from 7.04 to 0.05 ml O2.g-1.hr-1, with a corresponding decrease in respiratory minute volume from 49.4 to 0.9 ml.min-1 during torpor at an ambient temperature of 10 C. No changes in haemoglobin concentration (19.7 g/100 ml), haematocrit (54%), red blood corpuscle count (12.4 10(6)/microliter), mean corpuscular volume (43.6… CONTINUE READING
