Pitts, "Production and excretion of ammoina in relation to acid-base regulation
," in Renal Physiology, J.
Beachey (University of Mary) describes the anatomy of the respiratory system, the mechanics of ventilation, pulmonary function measurements, oxygen transport, acid-base regulation
, arterial blood gases, and cardiac electrophysiology.
Exercise physiology, acid-base regulation
, carbohydrate metabolism, oxygen transport to tissue
The topics covered include salmonid smolting; role of peptide hormones in fish osmoregulation; environmental perturbation of oxygen transport in teleost fishes; acid-base regulation
in response to changes in the environment; environmental effects on fish gill structure and function; effects of water pH on gas and ion transfer across fish gills; branchial mechanisms of acclimation to metals in freshwater fish.
Baumberger-Henry (nursing, Widener U., Pennsylvania) presents this concise reference for nursing students illustrating the concepts of fluid, electrolyte, and acid-base regulation
, as well as conditions that contribute to imbalance of these factors.
