Basal secretion of Pavlov pouch dogs as influenced by oxygen want
- 9 Downloads
The chlorides, acids and pH of the basal secretion of the Pavlov pouch are not appreciably affected by oxygen want within ranges compatible with consciousness in the unacclimatized dog.
The volume of basal secretion is not affected by moderate ranges of oxygen want as much as is the secretion provoked by food. The more severe degrees of oxygen want, however, depress the basal secretion the same as it does the secretion caused by the stimulating action of food.
The work suggests that the basal secretion of the gastric glands has a low oxygen requirement.
Finally, it is of clinical interest to know that even moderately severe degrees of oxygen want have no appreciable affect on the basal gastric secretion.
