Effect of blood and microbubble oxygen and nitrogen content on perfluorocarbon-filled dextrose albumin microbubble size and efficacy: in vitro and in vivo studies.

Abstract

We hypothesized, on the basis of in vitro observations, that a higher oxygen partial pressure within perfluorocarbon-containing microbubbles (PCMB) would enhance inward nitrogen diffusion after venous injection, leading to improved myocardial contrast. The in vitro studies measured PCMB size and concentration after injection into arterial blood that was… (More)
