Abstract

Model calculations of tissue oxygen partial pressure (p02) in rat heart have shown that the heterogeneity of capillary spacing is a very important factor. It causes quite a scatter in the p02, resulting in broad histograms (Turek et al., 1991; Hoofd, 1992; Hoofd and Turek, 1992). Such histograms conform quite well with oxygen electrode measurements (Turek et al., 1991).
