Abstract:

Biochemical studies were conducted on immature chimpanzees undergoing 20 hours without food and water at temperatures of 70, 80, 90, 95 and 100 deg F at 50 humidity acceleration-deceleration tests and the suborbital flight of chimpanzee No. 65 HAM. Twelve urine determinations and seven plasma determinations were obtained with the view of evaluating respiration acid-base balance, nitrogen metabolism, adrenal-pituitary and sympathico-adrenal systems.
