Recovery of radial PO(2) profiles from phosphorescence quenching measurements in microvessels.

Abstract

Work by previous investigators has indicated that a substantial amount of oxygen diffuses from the precapillary circulation. These losses imply that there should be radial gradients of oxygen tension (PO(2)) in arterioles, leading to a non-uniform distribution of oxygen within these microvessels. We have employed the phosphorescence quenching method to… (More)
