Abstract:

Liver tissues of rats, dogs and monkeys were examined electron microscopically after exposure to pure oxygen at pressures varying from 258-2280 mm Hg for periods of time from 15 minutes to 8 months. Results of these were compared in many instances with similar tissue from animals exposed to two-gas atmospheres. The studies indicate that mitochondria in liver cells are altered, but that adaptation to the altered atmosphere occurs. Adaptation in the liver is complete with no evidence of damage. Author
