RATIONALE Oxygen uptake is the elemental function of the lung. However, current understanding of this process has largely been derived from theoretical considerations and measurements of global pulmonary gas exchange. OBJECTIVES To report the direct visualization of pulmonary oxygen uptake in vivo and its use for the analysis of temporal and spatial oxygenation profiles along individual arteriovenous pathways in lungs of healthy and chronic hypoxic mice. METHODS A murine model for… CONTINUE READING
