Comparative electrocardiographic study of South American camelids living in the High Andes and at sea level


Avances en Ciencias Veterinarias 3(2): 92-97
Comparative electrocardiographic study of South American camelids living in the High Andes and at sea level
Guanacoes, lamas, alpacas and vicunas born and living at an altitude of 4400 metres and others, born and/or kept at 170 metres for more than 2 years, were examined by electrocardiography. The only significant difference found between the two groups was a longer electric ventricular systole (Q-Tc interval) and a slower heart rate in the animals living at the high altitide.
