Oxygen Transport in Red Blood Cells

Edited by

  • C. Nicolau, Centre de Biophysique Moléculaire, Orléans, France

This volume contains a comprehensive coverage of all the major areas of research in blood/gas interactions. Not only are areas of clinical importance covered but several chapters deal with processes at the molecular level. The interaction between blood and specific organs, especially the brain, are also dealt with. Possible methods of gas analysis are discussed, including NMR spectroscopy, as well as the techniques and problems of established tests. This volume gives a concise, in-depth overview of current thinking in all these areas.
