Abstract

The relative contribution of arteriovenous oxygen (A-V O2) difference to thermally-induced and activity-induced changes in metabolic rate (VO2) were delineated in the toad, B. marinus. In conjunction, the influence of rest and activity, temperature, and removal of the pericardia! sac on separation efficiency (Es) in the anuran ventricle was determined by direct measurement of arterial and venous percent oxygen saturation (% saturation), using a microsampling technique.
