Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 191)


The aim of the present proposal is to recommend some definitions of important and frequently used terms in the field of oxygen transport to tissue. The latest glossary on this topic is dated 1973 and was published by the International Union of Physiological Sciences (J. Appl. Physiol. 34, 549 – 558, 1973). In the meantime, some of these definitions are either outdated or are used in another sense.
