Abstract:

Stroma free hemoglobin solution SFH has been proposed as a blood substitute for the purposes of acute resuscitation because of its unique ability to transport oxygen. The fact that SFH has a strongly left shifted oxygen dissociation curve raises questions about its ability to unload oxygen. The object of our study is to characterize the in vivo oxygen unloading properties of SFH in baboons, in the absence of circulating red blood cells.
