1. The increase in the capacity of blood caused by allotropic transition of hemoglobin is greater if venous blood is magnetized.

2. Additional oxygen capacity caused by magnetization decreases in the absence of magnetic field (the relaxation time is approximately 2 min).

3. Magnetized blood has additional oxygen capacity only in the absence of an added magnetic field.
