We have carried out balance studies in normal dogs in order to appraise the effects of chronic hypoxemia on acid—base and electrolyte equilibrium. During the first phase of observation we produced a state of “pure” hypoxemia by reducing the oxygen concentration (utilizing nitrogen as a diluent) and by adding carbon dioxide to the environment in a concentration sufficient to keep arterial CO2 tension (PCO2) within normal limits. The data demonstrate that such a 9-day period of normocapneic hypoxemia has no effect on electrolyte excretion and is virtually without effect on plasma composition.

Usage data is cumulative from August 2021 through August 2022.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
