When tissue O2 delivery falls below a critical threshold, tissue O2 uptake (VO2) becomes limited. We compared critical O2 delivery and critical and maximum O2 extraction ratios of the resting and contracting left hemidiaphragm with those of nondiaphragmatic tissues in seven dogs. The left hemidiaphragm was perfused through the left inferior phrenic artery… CONTINUE READING
