There are four primary mechanisms that combine to manifest reperfusion injury:
1.oxidative stress
2.calcium stress
3.the neutorphil-endothelium interaction
4.apoptosis.

If 1 and 2 can be controlled then 3 and 4 will be minimized.

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.
