Yogananda perceives that the internal consciousness of ordinary people operates only from the lumbar, sacral, and coccygeal
centers that direct all material sensory perceptions and enjoyments.
Finally, the sacrotuberous ligament is pierced by the coccygeal
branches of the inferior gluteal artery, and the perforating cutaneous nerve and filaments of the coccygeal
plexus (Williams et al.
Blood samples: Approximately 15 ml of blood was sampled weekly from d 1 to 60 after calving via venipuncture of coccygeal
vessels before the morning feeding and placed in vacutainer tubes without anticoagulant to monitor serum metabolites.
Position the patient over the edge of the table with support at the ankles to better accommodate assistants, and provide the patient with good padding in the coccygeal
Blood samples were collected from the animals by coccygeal
artery puncture, using 15 ml vacutainer tubes containing heparin at zero hour of first OPU just before the start of treatment, and every 12 h after initiation of treatment over the period of eight OPU sessions in all treatment groups.
Each bull was weighed using portable electronic scales, and measurements made of heights at the withers and the hips from the ground to their highest points, chest (heart) girth measured just behind the forelegs, the body length from the anterior point of the withers to the joint between the sacrum and the first coccygeal
vertebra, and the length of the metatarsus from the tuber calcanei to a point between the proximal sesamoid bones.
The samples were collected by coccygeal
venipuncture using Vacutainer[R] tubes and needles.
Assessment was based on palpation of the transverse processes of loin vertebrae, cranial coccygeal
vertebrae (tail head), and tuber ischii (pin bones).
