oxygen consumption n.
An expression of the rate at which oxygen is used by tissues, usually given in microliters of oxygen consumed in 1 hour by 1 milligram dry weight of tissue.
Values of oxygen consumption, evaporative water loss, and body temperature were plotted as a function of chamber air temperature.
oxygen consumption was calculated from the difference in oxygen content between inlet and outlet air using Eq.
Each point was recorded during the lowest level of oxygen consumption at each Ta.
This addition of nitrogen played a very important rôle in the calculation of the oxygen consumption as formerly employed.
oxygen consumption was increased by the presence of added catalase at all glycerol levels and in the control.
However, the general trend in oxygen consumption produced by the addition of glycerol was not changed greatly.
