Effects of ultra-purified polymerized bovine hemoglobin on local tissue oxygen tension in striated skin muscle – An efficacy study in the hamster.

This is another study on the potential benefits of an oxygen carrier (ultrapurified polymerized bovine hemoglobin solution) on tissue perfusion after hypervolemic infusion or exchange transfusion of 50% of blood volume in a hamster model. The authors have shown that the infusion of the hemoglobin solution actually decreases (slightly) mean tissue pO2 but homogenizes local […]
