1. An overview of the proposed biological applications of perfluorocarbons and their emulsions as oxygen-transport fluids is presented. 2. Aspects of the properties, preparation, composition and physiological assessment of perfluorocarbon emulsions are discussed. 3. The experimental basis for some of the potential therapeutic uses of PFCs in liquid ventilation, treatment of decompression sickness, organ perfusion, oxygenation of ischaemic and malignant tissues, and as contrast media for NMR… CONTINUE READING
