Abstract : The report contains six separate projects: (1) 'Fate of blood glucose taken up by intestinal tissues of the hypotensive dog,' Metabolic study of small intestine combined with intestinal lumen irrigation suggests that no glucose is lost to lumen during early hemorrhage. (2) 'Small intestinal hemodynamics and metabolism following acute severe hemorrhagic hypotension in the baboon.' Metabolic study of baboon intestinal tissues shows that baboons do not take up extra blood-borne glucose during early hemorrhage, unlike dogs. (3) 'Histological studies of intestinal tissues in hypotensive dogs and baboons.' Light and electron microscopy failed to find intracellular glycogen stores, but notes prolific goblet cell secretion during hemorrhagic hypotension. (4) 'Small intestinal hemodynamics and metabolism following hemorrhage in one conscious dog,' (Abstract only). (5) 3A new preparation to study pancreatic metabolism and hemodynamics in the anesthetized dog and baboon. In vivo isolated pancreas preparation is described. (6) 'FFA titration to pH endpoint in the Dole-Meinertz method.'
