Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 388)

Abstract

Under optimal conditions all oxygen parameters of human blood are defined at a theoretical basis, accepted and understood by the clinicians, measured correctly by instruments of different manufacturers and, therefore, leading to clear diagnoses for the patients.
