The in vivo and in vitro oxygen-binding capacity of haemoglobin was determined on 10 occasions in nine patients who required mechanical ventilation. The in vitro sample was tonometered with 97% oxygen for 10 min and then with air, while the in vivo sample was obtained after 20 min of lung ventilation with pure oxygen. Subsequent laboratory procedures were identical for both samples. The mean oxygen-binding capacity of haemoglobin in vitro and in vivo samples were almost equal (1.365 +2- 0.010… Expand
A review on anaemia in pregnancy
The normal physiological change of an increase in plasma volume causes hemodilution in a pregnant woman, resulting in a lowering of haemoglobin (Hb), the iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of all vertebrates. Expand
Evidence that human and equine erythrocytes could have significant roles in the transport and delivery of amino acids to organs and tissues
The capacity for rapid uptake/release of amino acids by equine and human erythrocytes provided evidence to support the theory that mammalian ery Throcytes have a significant role in transport of amino acid from the liver to tissues, muscles and organs. Expand
Pre-Clinical Evaluation of an Adult Extracorporeal Carbon Dioxide Removal System with Active Mixing for Pediatric Respiratory Support
Seven-day animal studies in juvenile sheep demonstrated that veno-venous extracorporeal support could be used safely and effectively with no significant adverse reactions related to device operation. Expand
Assessment of Plasma Iron, Feritin, Blood Platelets and Hemoglobin Concentration in Rabbits Given Amoxicillin Overdose Supplemented with Raw Cucumber Juice
Background and Aim: Raw Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) fruit juice contains substances of health promoting bioactivities. Plasma iron is stored in the liver and blood cells. Platelets are blood cellsExpand
Disturbances in Energy Supply
Abstract In animals and humans, dioxygen and glucose are the main substrates used for generation of universal energy equivalents in form of adenosine triphosphate. Uptake, transport, and utilizationExpand
Tissue oxidative metabolism can increase the difference between local temperature and arterial blood temperature by up to 1.3oC: Implications for brain, brown adipose tissue, and muscle physiology
The theoretical analysis demonstrates that, at equilibrium, the temperature difference between the organ tissue and the arterial blood is proportional to the arteriovenous difference in oxygen content, does not depend on the blood flow, and cannot exceed 1.3oC. Expand
Quantifying the cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen by combining diffuse correlation spectroscopy and time-resolved near-infrared spectroscopy
It is demonstrated that changes in absolute CMRO2 could be measured by combining diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS) with time-resolved near-infrared spectroscope (TR-NIRS) and that no significant differences were found between the two sets of SvO2 measurements obtained by TR-NirS or sagittal sinus blood samples and the corresponding CM RO2 measurements.

The result obtained for H-barteri (blood plum) juice in albino rats reveals increase in Hb concentration, packed cell volume, erythrocytes count, with significant difference when compared with the control showing that the H- barteri juice was good sources of blood tonic actively when taken in sufficient amount.

Reaction of hemoglobin with HOCl: mechanism of heme destruction and free iron release.
This work provides a direct link between Hb heme destruction and subsequent free iron accumulation, as occurs under inflammatory conditions where HOCl is formed in substantial amounts. Expand
Reactivation of Fetal Hemoglobin for Treating β-Thalassemia and Sickle Cell Disease.
The importance for understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying hemoglobin switching so that future studies can be designed to treat patients with β-thalassemia and sickle cell disease is highlighted. Expand


The influence of carboxyhaemoglobin on the oxygen-binding capacity of blood. A comparison of manometric (Van Slyke) and optical (Co-Oximeter) measurements.
Oxygen content measurements determined optically by the Co-Oximeter correlated closely with those obtained using the manometric technique of Van Slyke, supporting this as the mean value for the oxygen-binding capacity of haemoglobin, although the large individual variability persisted. Expand
Calculation of blood O2 content from optically determined Hb and HbO2.
The Co–Oximeter is an instrument of considerable utility in measuring Hb and HbO2. For O2,contents calculated from these measurements to be compatible with those determined by the Van SlykeExpand

A sensitive micromethod for the determination of methemoglobin in blood.
A higher precision of the assay is achieved, and sample stability is increased up to 24 h, thus making the procedure suitable for field surveys aimed at detecting slightly raised methemoglobin levels. Expand
