The interrelation between the renal cortical pO2 and renal fractional extraction of arterial lactate was investigated in dogs subjected to gradual haemorrhage up to 45-50% of their blood volume. The cortical pO2, measured by means of an implanted Silastic tube, responded immediately to graded haemorrhage. The renal lactate extraction increased parallel with… CONTINUE READING
