Abstract


We investigated the impact of short-term experimental hyperthermia on glucose and haemogram in rats Rattus norvegicus (Wistar strain). The blood used for the analysis was obtained by the method of direct puncture of the heart. We analyzed the biochemical (glucose) and haematological parameters (RBC, WBC, hemoglobin, hematocrit, and haematological indices). The effect of short-term hyperthermia leads to a statistically significant increase of the number of erythrocytes, leukocytes and glucose concentration, whereas statistically significant reduction in hemoglobin concentration and hematological indices is evident.

Key words: hyperthermia, haemogram, glucose concentration
