1. Arterial blood was sampled at 15 min-intervals in European hamstersCricetus cricetus fitted with indwelling catheters, from deep hibernation to full arousal. Temperature-corrected pH andP CO2, respectively pH* andP * CO2, were directly measured at 37 °C. 2. Deep hibernation corresponded to a respiratory acidosis: pH*=7.01±0.01 (mean±SE),P * CO2=160±4 Torr (n=9 animals). 3. Three periods could be distinguished in the arousal: (i) a period of hyperventilation (28±5 min), in whichP * CO2 was… CONTINUE READING
