Arterial blood gases in undisturbed resting birds: measurements in chicken and duck

Respiration Physiology
T Kawashiro, P Scheid


Arterial blood was sampled in resting, unrestrained and undisturbed birds using a remote-controlled sampling device. With this technique a blood sample of 0.45 ml was obtained for analysis of PO2, PCO2 and pH at the body temperature of the animal. In 5 domestic hens the following mean values were obtained: PA02-82 torr; PACO2=33 torr; pHA=7.52. The average body temperature was TB=41.0 degrees C. In 6 domestic ducks the analysis yielded values of PAO2=82 torr; PACO2=38 torr; pH2=7.49; Tb=41.0 degrees C. Although these values are close to those reported in the literature some discrepancies may be recognized; they can be attributed to respiratory and metabolic changes of blood composition possibly induced by classical sampling procedures.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
