Erythropoietin (EPO) controls red cell production. Hypoxaemia, reduced blood oxygen-carrying capacity and increased affinity of haemoglobin (Hb) for oxygen are the primary stimuli for EPO secretion. The effect of hyperoxaemia (arterial oxygen tension (Pa,O2) > 13.3 kPa) on EPO secretion has not been thoroughly studied and is not fully understood. The(More)
