Guinea pigs were exposed until death in a cold chamber kept a 4 to 5C. Some of the guinea pigs were previously acclimatized to 22C and to 8C, respectively. Some were given vitamin supplements of 30 or 300 mg per kg ascorbic acid, others were given no vitamin supplement. Electrocardiograms were taken for all animals exposed. Measurements of the various intervals on the electrocardiograms including the heart rate indicated that the various treatments had no effect on the response of the heart to the cold. Author
