These experiments were undertaken to determine electrolyte concentration and acid-base status of aqueous humor and arterial plasma H2O in perinatal and adult goats. The distribution of potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, and calcium between aqueous humor and plasma H2O in fetal, neonatal, and adult goats changed independently with age and could not be explained by passive Gibbs-Donnan equilibria. Anterior chamber aqueous humor has a reduced pH, PO2, HCO3-, and an elevated PCO2 compared to arterial blood in the neonate and adult.
