This study reports an online temperature correction method for determining tissue oxygen partial pressure P(tO2) in the striatum and a novel simultaneous measurement of brain P(tO2) and temperature (T(brain)) in conjunction with global oxygen consumption V(O2) in non-sedated and non-anesthetized freely moving Arctic ground squirrels (AGS, Spermophilus parryii). This method fills an important research gap-the lack of a suitable method for physiologic studies of tissue P(O2) in hibernating or… CONTINUE READING
