Table 3 Effects of BW on hypoxic tolerance indices in mice (\( \overline{x} \)±s)

From: An improved formula for standard hypoxia tolerance time (STT) to evaluate hypoxic tolerance in mice

Group BW (g) Bottle volume (ml) ST (min) STT (min/ml) ASTT (min·g/ml)
Control (n = 12) 18.66 ± 0.70 158.2 ± 2.9 15.67 ± 2.03 0.11 ± 0.0147 2.12 ± 0.297
Medium BW (Saline 1 (n = 12) 18.57 ± 0.49 158.2 ± 2.9 16.08 ± 5.05 0.12 ± 0.0369 2.15 ± 0.636
Low BW (Saline 2(n = 14) 14.40 ± 0.52* 158 ± 2.7 22.14 ± 2.77 0.16 ± 0.0189* 2.23 ± 0.255
  1. ST. Survival time; STT. Standard hypoxia tolerance time; ASTT. Adjusted standard hypoxia tolerance time; BW. Body weight. *P < 0.01 compared with saline group; P < 0.01 compared with medium BW group (saline 1 group)
