Microphysiological Studies on Oxygenation of Normal or Ischaemic Myocardium
This paper contains some observations on the state of oxygenation of myocardial tissue that were obtained during studies on the collateral supply of oxygen during haemodilution and during the production of myocardial infarction , It was possible to obtain on-line partial pressures of oxygen (PO2) from the myocardium for extended periods, and very high fidelity recordings were produced. It was thus possible to make accurate observations of myocardial oxygenation in relation to flow in the main coronary arteries and in relation to areas of ischaemic hypoxia.
