Microvascular oxygen tension in the rat mesentery.


Longitudinal Po(2) profiles in the microvasculature of the rat mesentery were studied using a novel phosphorescence quenching microscopy technique that minimizes the accumulated photoconsumption of oxygen by the method. Intravascular oxygen tension (Po(2), in mmHg) and vessel diameter (d, in microm) were measured in mesenteric microvessels (n = 204) of… (More)
