The effect of an increase in hemoglobin O2 affinity on myocardial O2 delivery was studied in a blood perfused working rat heart preparation. In a first series of experiments P50 (PO2 for which saturation is 50%) was lowered by use of carbon monoxide. The heart was alternatively perfused with the blood sample of P50 = 32 mm Hg and the blood sample of P50 = 17 mm Hg. O2 capacity of both samples was kept the same by appropriate hemodilution. In a second serie of experiments change of P50 was obtained by the use of adult human erythrocytes containing hemoglobin creteil with a P50 of 13.6 mm Hg. As P50 decreased from 25 to 10 mm Hg, coronary sinus PO2 (PcsO2) diminished from 26 +/- 2 to 18 +/- 2 mm Hg (-29 +/- 2%), coronary sinus O2 content (CcsO2) increased by 15 +/- 3%, myocardial oxygen consumption did not change significantly. The percentage of increase of coronary flow was 23 +/- 4%. Analysis of these results with a simple mathematical model of O2 delivery suggest that increase in HbO2 affinity is corrected by a simultaneous increase in coronary flow and capillary recruitment.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
