Blood substitutes made on the basis of perfluorocarbons inhibit intracellular energy generation.

Abstract

Although perfluorocarbons (PFC) are chemically inert, toxic reactions are observed on using them as fluorocarbon emulsions in blood substitutes. Six to twelve hours after exchanging about half of the circulating blood of conscious rats pathobiochemical reactions occur despite a high interarterial oxygen pressure. They indicate the disturbance of… (More)
