[Response of arterial blood haemoglobin saturation to short-term intermittent normobaric hypoxia in humans].

Abstract

The paper presents experimental data supporting a hypothesis that the changes of arterial blood haemoglobin saturation during breathing the hypoxic gas mixture (10-13% O2) can be fitted by exponential function. The formal description of the saturation curves allowed verifying their stages and evaluating interindividual variability. It is suggested that the parameters of exponents can be used when estimating an individual hypoxic resistance of a human organism.
