Experimental biology and medicine
The following determinations of basal metabolism were calculated by indirect calorimetry from the oxygen absorption and the R. Q., these factors being obtained by means of Benedict's unit apparatus (mouthpiece and spirometer). At least three ten-minute periods were run, and the average taken for that day's basal metabolism.
