Quantitative genetic analysis of arterial oxygen saturation in Tibetan highlanders.

Abstract

This study was designed to test the hypothesis that genetic differences inferred from biological kinship relationships among individuals contribute to individual variation in percentage of oxygen saturation of arterial hemoglobin (SaO2) in a high-altitude native population. SaO2 data were obtained by pulse oximetry from 354 nonpregnant, healthy Tibetan… (More)
