Pagination or Media Count:
Eight normal Macaca mulatta anesthetized with pentobarbital were subjected to right and retrograde left heart catheterization and analysis of expired gas. Measurements were made of the aortic, left ventricular, pulmonary capillary, pulmonary arterial, right ventricular and right atrial pressures, heart rate, cardiac and stroke index, peripheral and pulmonary vascular resistance, tension-time index, systolic ejection period and rate index, left ventricular work and stroke index, minute respiratory volume and oxygen consumption index and arterial and mixed venous blood oxygen content and saturation. The data will serve as a baseline for cardiopulmonary studies with this species.
