Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simple apparatus for induction of artificial respiration in laboratory animals is described. The apparatus is supplied with an open system of air circulation and provides forced inhalation and exhalation. The apparatus permits a separate control of the respiratory rhythm (from 10 to 100 p per minute), respiration volume (from 5 to 500 ml) and pressure in the respiratory tract (from 2 to 20 mm Hg). The unit was tested in experiments on cats and dogs.
