Temperature Effect on Oxygenation and Metabolism of Perfused Rat Hindlimb Muscle
Temperature effect on tissue oxygenation and metabolism is a major concern to activity and/or viability of tissues. In an ischemic state, supplement of oxygen and nutrients is impaired and metabolites are accumulated, thus tissue damage is induced reversibly or irreversibly. This deterioration of tissue accompanied by ischemia is mediated by chemical reactions, and the rates are directly dependent upon temperature. Rat hindlimb is well suited for the optical measurement of biochemicals that participate in oxygen transport (Tamura et al., 1987; Seiyama et al., 1988) as well as the biochemical investigation on the integral function of skeletal muscle (Shiota et al., 1986).
