A study was undertaken to provide further information on the ruminal, cardiorespiratory and hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPAC) physiological sequelae of hypocalcaemia in dairy calves. The functional picture observed in standing calves experiencing Na2EDTA-induced progressive hypocalcaemia showed a biphasic pattern. During the first phase (Ca2+ varying between 1.20 +/- 0.09 and 0.64 +/- 0.15 mmol/L, mean +/- SD), the animals became dull and lethargic, shifting their weight from one hind limb to the other, with cool extremities and hypersalivation. Their ventilation was slightly increased but their heart rate, thoracoabdominal pressure, pulmonary mechanics, haemoglobin and temperature remained constant. Conversely, their systemic arterial pressure (SAP) and the amplitude of their ruminal contractions (RCA) were severely decreased. During the second phase (Ca2+ < 0.64 +/- 0.15 mmol/L), there was restlessness, tachycardia, hypertension, polycythaemia and, finally, inability to stay upright. It is suggested that the diminished Ca2+ availability caused smooth-muscle and myocardial dysfunctions which could explain the RCA and SAP changes recorded during the first phase, whereas neural and/or humoral sympathetic discharge probably accounted for the reversal in SAP and heart rate when Ca2+ was decreased further. Serum cortisol increased regularly and remained significantly correlated with Ca2+ in each animal. Moreover, regression of delta cortisol/delta Ca2+ on delta Ca2+/delta Na2EDTA was significant (p < or = 0.001). It was concluded that mild asymptomatic hypocalcaemia severely impairs ruminal function, which will progressively worsen the Ca2+ deficit; that the inability to maintain posture in hypocalcaemia is not due to hypotension; and that the higher the HPAC response to hypocalcaemia, the higher the resistance to its effects. An asymptomatic periparturient cow with barely detectable ruminal activity may merit preventive calcium borogluconate therapy. Also, the physiological role of hypotension in explaining the clinical picture may be less important than other processes, such as neuromuscular failure. Finally, the present results imply a possible HPAC exhaustion in cows with periparturient paretic hypocalcaemia [less ▲]

Owing to technical and ethical limitations, a substantial part of the knowledge about the pathophysiologic mechanism of the human diaphragm has been obtained from studies in which phrenic nerve activation was usually carried out by direct surgical exposure of the nerves in the neck of deeply anesthetized, mechanically ventilated animals. Novel information has been gleaned from such studies, but the restrictive conditions under which it was collected preclude reliable extrapolation. We, therefore, addressed the question of whether accurate electrophysiologic evaluation of the phrenic nerve-diaphragm pathway can be performed in intact, nonanesthetized calves. Transjugular phrenic activation was well tolerated, safe, specific, and able to achieve constant symmetric and supramaximal phrenic stimulations during prolonged periods. Eighteen noninvasive cutaneous and esophageal reception circuits were tested for their ability to record the diaphragmatic evoked potential. In addition, they were compared for specificity and reproducibility of the recorded potentials during prolonged periods of tidal or stimulated respiration. The best diaphragmatic potential was recorded from surface electrodes attached to the skin of the ninth and tenth intercostal spaces, using a xyphoidian reference. We describe a method that allows easy, longterm, and reliable electrophysiologic evaluation of the phrenic nerve-diaphragm pathway in intact, conscious calves. It is hoped that such a model will produce relevant novel information regarding pathophysiology of the diaphragm. [less ▲]

Whereas reliable measurements of diaphragmatic force and electrical activity are now available in calves, evidence that substrate contents in the bovine diaphragm can be accurately measured is still lacking. The purposes of the present study were therefore a) to describe and test the reliability of methods and procedures used for sampling, lyophilisation, extraction and dosage of muscular lactate, glycogen and creatine contents and b) to report the variation in their levels found along the bovine diaphragm and among individuals. The repeatability of the results yielded by a) assaying the extracts, b) processing and assaying the extracts and c) taking samples at different sites in the muscle was assessed. Neither assay, nor processing effects were significant (P < or = 0.05). Substrates were found to be homogeneously distributed within the two muscles studied. Substrate contents expressed per unit of muscle weight or total creatine were neither more or less variable than when expressed per unit of dry matter. [less ▲]

Forty-one and 55 records of right-sided and systemic arterial pressures, cardiac output, and end-diastolic and end-systolic right ventricular volumes were collected from a group of 6 conventional and 6 double-muscled calves, respectively. In each group, the mean right ventricular pressure-volume loop was constructed. Global cardiac performance was significantly lower in the double-muscled than in the conventional calves. The right ventricular end-diastolic and end-systolic volumes, as well as the diastolic portion of the mean pressure-volume loop, were similar in the 2 groups. Those results suggest that the reduced cardiac performance of double-muscled calves is not due to a lowered ventricular preload and that diastolic properties of their myocardium are similar to those of conventional calves. When expressed on a body weight basis, however, the right ventricular end-diastolic and end-systolic volumes were lower in the double-muscled than in conventional calves. When expressed as a function of probable metabolic demand, therefore, the volumetric capacity of the cardiac pump appears to be reduced in double-muscled calves. The significantly lower right ventricular ejection fraction, maximal rate of ventricular pressure rise and right ventricular peak-systolic pressure to end-systolic volume ratio measured in double-muscled as compared with conventional calves suggest that reduced myocardial contractility may also be partly responsible for the significantly lower stroke index of the former calves. The cardiac pump of double-muscled cattle thus seems to be less effective than that of conventional cattle because of reduced volumetric capacity and lowered strength of contraction. [less ▲]

Because of the anatomic association of an exceptionally bulky stomach with a striking compartmentation of the chest wall, leading to the most cranial insertion of the diaphragm among mammals, gastric overdistension in the bovine species offers a unique pathophysiological condition for the diaphragm. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether increased intragastric pressure (Pga) (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 kPa) leads to perturbations of respiratory and diaphragm function in calves. Changes in diaphragmatic strength and inspiratory action followed a biphasic pattern: 1) transdiaphragmatic pressure (Pdi) in response to constant bilateral maximal phrenic nerve stimulation at 30 Hz increased with moderate gastric distension and then fell abruptly as Pga continued to rise and 2) the magnitude of the ratio of the fall in pleural pressure to total Pdi was maintained up to a Pga amounting to 2 kPa but declined at higher pressures. We conclude that gastric distension in the bovine species provokes physiologically significant alterations of the diaphragm excitation-to-pressure generation coupling as well as of its capacity to convert Pdi into useful inspiratory pleural pressure. We suggest that these perturbations resulted from the combination of 1) altered tension-generating capacity due to compromised perfusion, 2) altered diaphragm geometry capable of altering tension-to-pressure generation coupling, and 3) modified coupling of the diaphragm with the chest wall that reduced its ability to drive inspiration [less ▲]
