Iris arteriolar diameters in hypoxia and hyperoxia: a photographic study in albino guinea pigs.

Published

Journal Article

The irides of albino guinea pigs were photographed, and the iris arteriolar diameters were measured with the animal breathing room air, 10% O2/90% N2, or 100% O2. The iris arterioles constrict significantly in hyperoxia and dilate in hypoxia. The average constriction in 100% O2 was 27% +/- 8%, and the average dilatation in 10% oxygen was 34% +/- 20%.
