An account of an experiment of preserving animals alive by blowing through their lungs with bellows.Phil. Trans., 2, 539-40, 1667.
By blowing air from a bellows over the exposed lungs of a dog, Hooke proved that respiratory motion is not necessary to maintain life, but that the essential feature of respiration lies in certain blood changes in the lungs. Reprinted in J. F. Fulton’s Selected readings in the history of physiology, 2nded., 1966, pp. 121-23.
