One Thought on “Session 1: Understanding the Oxygen Pressure Field Using the Krogh Cylinder Model”

    GREAT STUFF! I am confused by this formula that was used in the text: “Also oxygen is about 2/3rds more soluble (0.05 cc/mmHg/kg of H2O) at 18 °C than at 37 °C (0.03 cc/mmHg/kg of H2O).” Do you mean cc/mmHg per deciliter of plasma? Thanks for all you are doing to help educate those that are interested! This should be required reading for all Perfusionists!

Perfusion Theory is an educational platform for the Oxygen Pressure Field Theory (OPFT). August Krogh’s theoretical concept of the oxygen pressure field is explained and then applied to clinical applications in perfusion practice.
