Phosphorescence and Fluorescence Imaging: New Tools for the Study of Carotid Body Function
Perfusion of individual organs of the body in the isolated state is a powerful tool for the study of their integrated function. This approach has provided, for example, a wealth of knowledge on the relationship between metabolism and function in several tissues, including heart, liver, kidney, and skeletal muscle. The carotid body, however, has proven unreliable as an in vitro perfused model.
