Effect of a Shift of the Oxygen Dissociation Curve on Myocardial Oxygenation at Hypoxia
Krogh’s cylindrical model of the tissue (1922) has been widely used for the estimation of tissue oxygen tension (PO2). The model is based on several assumptions but it probably depicts the major trends in the changes of oxygen tension, even though the absolute values may deviate from reality.
