Table 2 Input O2 concentration (CaO2) of the MPS solutions with and without the addition of erythrocytes

From: Temperature and flow rate limit the optimal ex-vivo perfusion of the heart - an experimental study

  22 °C MPS solution 22 °C MPS solution + Erythrocytes 37 °C MPS solution 37 °C MPS solution + Erythrocytes
CaO2(mL/dL) 2.17 ± 0.07 *,^ 3.14 ± 0.27 1.58 ± 0.16 * 2.69 ± 0.30
Hb (g/dL) N/A 0.79 ± 0.20 N/A 0.73 ± 0.19
  1. Data are expressed as mean ± SEM. *p < 0.05 for MPS solution vs MPS solution + Erythrocytes; ^p < 0.05 for 22 °C vs 37 °C.
