Abstract : ;Contents: Effects of Gy acceleration on blood oxygen saturation and pleural pressure relationships in dogs breathing first air, then liquid fluorocarbon in a whole-body water-immersion respirator; Respiratory variations in left ventricular stroke volume during liquid breathing; Effects of +Gy acceleration on the regional distribution of pulmonary blood flow in dogs breathing organic liquids in a whole-body water-immersion respirator; Study of acidemia in dogs breathing oxygenated FC 80 liquid fluorocarbon; Computer processing of physiological data; Effect of inflation levels and body position changes upon regional pulmonary parenchymal movements in dogs at 1G; Effect of changes in the magnitude and direction of the force environment on regional distortion of lung parenchyma in dogs; Gas embolism due to intravenous injection of FC 80 fluorocarbon.
