oxygen delivery

oxygen delivery

The amount of oxygen carried to the tissues, i.e., the cardiac output multiplied by the oxygen content of arterial blood.

oxygen delivery

the rate of supply of oxygen by the arterial blood to body organs and tissues, expressed as cardiac output (L.min-1)×oxygen content of the blood (L.L-1), e.g. typical resting value would be 5 × 0.2 = 1 L.min-1. This is four times the typical oxygen usage at rest, since only a quarter of the oxygen in the arterial blood is removed by the tissues, reducing haemoglobin saturation from 100% to 75%. See also oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve.
