Measurements of blood pressure, heart rate, blood flow, PO2 and oxygen content of blood and examination of the heart of Antarctic fish Pagothenia borchgrevinki with x-cell disease and healthy fish
Entry ID: K057_2000_2002_NZ_1

Abstract: The presence of x-cell disease in Antarctic fish, a disease that affects the gills by producing lesions on the gill tissue, has been shown to affect the ability of the fish to take up oxygen and can cause problems with blood flow through the gills. The effect of x-cell disease on aspects of cardiovascular and respiratory physiology was investigated in resting and exercised fish and in healthy and ... View entire text
