Cross-sectional oxygen distribution in microvessels in most previous studies has been assumed to be homogeneous. Recent studies using phosphorescence quenching microscopy or microspectrophotometry showed a decline in oxygen profile near the arterial wall. In this study we performed theoretical analysis of intravascular P(O(2)) and S(O(2)) profiles in arterioles by using a radial diffusion model with a constant oxygen efflux from the vascular lumen, taking intravascular flow distribution into… CONTINUE READING
