Previously we have shown that HC alters significantly the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen. This evidence stands in support of earlier investigations presented by Ditzel and Dyerburg (1977). Exposure to 6% chylomicra, slowly produced a decrease in the pO2 of human blood (37 degrees C, at in vivo pH) amounting to a 6.0 mm Hg leftward shift in the P-50. This(More)
Evidence for a leftward shift of the oxygen dissociation curve in HC patients was first described by Ditzel and Dyerberg. These results were challenged by Robertson et al., who saw no shift using a different technique to obtain P-50. Both methods are open to possible errors. In order to clarify the mechanism whereby HC blood shows an increased affinity for(More)
