A Method for Measuring the Rate of Oxygen Release from Flowing Erythrocytes in Microvessels
Physiologically, dynamics of oxygen release from erythrocytes in capillary to tissues is one of the most important phenomena. The major determinants of oxygen supply to tissues are blood flow to tissues, oxygen content in blood and the density of capillaries. The importance of capillary density has been well examined since the pioneering study of Krogh1.
