Criteria of individual and population-wide resistance to acute hypoxia

It is shown that the geometric mean of survival time and the deviation of σ from τ are measures of a population's resistance to acute hypoxia; that a measure of the individual resistance of an animal to such hypoxia is Student's parameter for that animal; that the distribution of Student's parameter in a population is a lognormal distribution under any conditions; and that the number of animals with low resistance is always equal to the number of highly resistant animals. The procedure described makes it possible to limit the number of animals used in an experiment by recording with the requisite accuracy the proposed measures of resistance to acute hypoxia at the population and individual levels. © 1995 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
