Abstract

Previous studies of tissue pO2 in the sartorius muscle in dogs revealed that hypoxaemia induced a redistribution of local pO2 in such a way that a lower mean value, but a very much narrower range of values was observed, without the appearance of partial pressures in the 0–5 mmHg range (Harrison et al., 1984). Preliminary measurements of capillary blood flow using the hydrogen clearance technique indicated that under these conditions a redistribution of microflow may occur.
