Abstract:

Contents Effects of Gy acceleration on blood oxygen saturation and pleural pressure relationships in dogs breathing first air, then liquid fluorocarbon in a whole-body water-immersion respirator Respiratory variations in left ventricular stroke volume during liquid breathing Effects of Gy acceleration on the regional distribution of pulmonary blood flow in dogs breathing organic liquids in a whole-body water-immersion respirator Study of acidemia in dogs breathing oxygenated FC 80 liquid fluorocarbon Computer processing of physiological data Effect of inflation levels and body position changes upon regional pulmonary parenchymal movements in dogs at 1G Effect of changes in the magnitude and direction of the force environment on regional distortion of lung parenchyma in dogs Gas embolism due to intravenous injection of FC 80 fluorocarbon.
