Ventricular Haemodynamics in the Monitor Lizard Varanus Ex Anthematicus : Pulmonary and Systemic Pressure Separation

The haemodynamics of the anatomically undivided ventricle of the monitor lizard Varanus exanthematicus have been examined by measurements of blood pressure and flow. Central blood POi, PGOt and pH were also measured. Intracardiac pressure measurements show the ventricle to be functionally divided throughout systole into a high pressure pump (cavum… CONTINUE READING
