Abstract

Confinement for 24 hours in pure nitrogen produces a great rise in blood sugar and lactate and fall in blood pH and bicarbonate, and tissue glycogen, in turtles. Recovery follows return to room air. pH and bicarbonate rise to or slightly above normal within 24 hours. Lactate falls markedly in the first 24 hours and is almost down to normal after 2 days; the sugar level falls more slowly but is normal within four days. Glycogen recovery is more rapid in liver than heart; muscle glycogen appears to rise above the pre-anoxic level.
