Alteration of Coronary Blood Flow in the Dog by Inhalation of 100 Per Cent Oxygen
The administration of 100 per cent oxygen to the open-chest anesthetized dog results in a decrease in coronary blood flow. This occurs whether the animal is fully saturated on ambient air or not. It occurs as well whether or not the animal is in vascular collapse requiring pressor agents for the maintenance of its blood pressure.
