Changes in Hemodynamics and Gas Metabolism after Endotoxin Injection
Hemodynamic disturbances are known to occur in mammals under the influence of endotoxins. Depending on the mode of administration and dosage, these disturbances may result in immediate death or lead to death through secondary metabolic changes. Due to anatomic and functional particularities, there are certain species-specific differences in the hemodynamics of individual partial circulations; on the whole, however, a fairly uniform course of shock is observed in primates, dogs, cats, and rabbits (1).
