A thrombelastographic study of the effect of stress on the blood coagulation in Cyprinus carpio (Cyprinidae) and Oreochromis mossambicus (Cichlidae).

Abstract

The normal blood coagulation in Cyprinus carpio and Oreochromis mossambicus was investigated by thrombelastography and standard thrombelastographs were obtained for each species. The effect of stress on blood coagulation was thereafter determined. The thrombelastograms indicated hypercoagulability under stress conditions. A prominent observation is the differences in the elasticity of the clot under various conditions. Fibrinolysis occurred in all cases, except in the case of Cyprinus carpio after severe agitation for 30 min. Relevant values for various parameters are given.
