Abstract

The oxygenation rate of blood flowing through permeable tubes can be increased by mixing or turbulence of the blood. Staging of the tubes has been suggested as one means of enhancing the oxygenation rate. A series of experiments has been performed to investigate the feasibility of staging and the results show a definite advantage in oxygen transfer compared with regular straight tubes.
