Several reports state that oxygen uptake changed in direct correlation with changes in total oxygen delivery to the tissues in the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Oxygen uptake appeared to be limited by oxygen delivery even at normally adequate levels so that uptake was abnormally dependent on supply. These reports are discussed with respect to whether or not such a result could have been due to errors in measurement or to mathematical coupling by relating two quantities that shared… CONTINUE READING
