Measurements of the extent of hypertension (aortae blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen tension of the blood and morphometrics of the heart) in Antarctic fish affected with x-cell disease
Entry ID: K057_2003_2005_NZ_1

Summary
Abstract: The ability of x-cell affected fish to swim was determined using a swimming tunnel closed box respirometer and measuring maximum oxygen consumption and recovery post exercise. In severe cases of x-cell disease infection, fish are chronically hypertensive. The extent of hypertension was assessed by measuring dorsal and ventral aortae blood pressures, heart rate and determination of oxygen tensions ... View entire text
