Table 2 Systolic and diastolic blood pressure (mmHg) and mean concentrations of plasma ET-1 (pg/ml) and serum cortisol (mmol/l) in Standardbred and Icelandic horses

From: Interday variation and effect of transportation on indirect blood pressure measurements, plasma endothelin-1 and serum cortisol in Standardbred and Icelandic horses

  1. Mean (±SD) values for systemic, systolic and diastolic blood pressure (measured with the HDO and the Cardell device), plasma ET-1 and serum cortisol concentration measured in two different breeds (Standardbred horses and Icelandic horses). * P 「 0.05 versus Standardbred horses. BP S : systolic blood pressure, BP D : diastolic blood pressure. n = 9, except for plasma ET-1 in the Icelandic horses where n = 7.
