The oxygen affinity of hemoglobin is affected by various factors, including blood pH and erythrocyte 2,3-diphosphoglycerate. The latter and blood P50 values are unchanged when aliquots of blood from normal individuals are permitted to stand at room temperature for as long as 7 h. Our data also show that equilibration in a 37 degrees C tonometer for times… CONTINUE READING
