The expressions posed by the model, unseeen by the observer, were guessed at greater than chance(More)

O(2) transport and O(2) diffusion interact in providing O(2) to tissue, but the extent to which diffusion may be critical in the heart is unclear. If O(2) diffusion limits mitochondrial oxygenation, a change in blood O(2) affinity at constant total O(2) transport should alter cardiac O(2) consumption (VO(2)) and function. To test this hypothesis, we(More)
