Oxygen microelectrodes were used to study longitudinal oxygen tension gradients (pO2) in small arterioles (with lumen diameters in control conditions of 5–20 μm) and capillaries in the rat cerebral cortex during stepwise decreases in the blood hemoglobin concentration ([Hb]) from an initial 14.4 ± 0.3 g/liter to 10.1 ± 0.2 (step 1), 7.0 ± 0.2 (step 2), and… CONTINUE READING
