Production and Inactivation of Catecholamines During Hypoxia and Recovery
At what degree of hypoxia do catecholamine levels rise in the sheep fetus?
How quickly are free catecholamines inactivated in the sheep fetus at the end of hypoxia?
What role does sulfoconjugation of free catecholamines play in catecholamine inactivation in human newborns?
What is the role of the human placenta in catecholamine inactivation?
