Respiratory Gas Transport Characteristics of Blood and Hemoglobin

  • Klaus P. Riegel
  • Hans T. Versmold


Hemoglobin is needed to supply the tissues with oxygen and to facilitate carbon dioxide transport in exchange; in addition, it acts as an important buffer in the extracellular compartment. Close interaction exists between oxygen and carbon dioxide binding and the buffering capacity. In this chapter, age-dependent differences and their physiological relevance will be discussed. Also, some clinical data will be used to put physiological data in perspective with perinatology. Chapters 6 and 11 provide supplemental information.
