The response of the new-born piglet to an excess of potassium

, : The response of the new-born piglet to an excess of potassium. Journal of Physiology 141(1): 88-96

Newborn piglets were fed by stomach tubes at 2 hour intervals for 20 feedings one of the following: water, water and KCI, sow's milk, sow's milk and KCL or nothing. Most of the administered KCI was excreted. The administration of KCl in water led to progressive retention of K, paralysis and hyperglycemia. Animals receiving KCI in milk retained a mild excess of K but were protected from the toxic effects of K by normal growth. The serum, urines and tissues of all animals were collected and analyzed and the results are reported.
