Knowledge of how the oxygen pressure field works can provide new insight to the perfusionist utilizing short term or long term extracorporeal support. This understanding of vital gas exchange at the microvascular level helps perfusionists to design successful perfusion strategies more apt to result in favorable outcomes for patients.

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.
