Abstract : OXYGEN UPTAKE, HEART RATE, AND BODY TEMPERATURE WERE EXAMINED IN MAN, DOG, AAND DOMESTIC SWINE DURING WORK OF GRADED INTENSITY ON MOTOR-DRIVE TREADMILLS. The dogs showed lower levels of metabolism when compared to the metabolism of man indicating a species difference for oxygen uptake during work. Cardiotachmeteric results indicated that the heart rate is highest in the dog, intermediate in the swine, and lowest in man during comparable physical work. Over the range of workloads tested, body temperature regulation of the swine was superior to that of the dog. Differences in the body responses are discussed in relationship to species specificity.
