In our study, red and blue food dyes were used to mimic the oxygenated hemoglobin and hemoglobin chromophores respectively.
It was evaluated that the more difficult the type of task, the more oxygenated hemoglobin and total hemoglobin concentration were required for their performance.
As a result, the amount of oxygenated hemoglobin flowing into that region increases.
The effects of hypoxia on the levels of oxygenated hemoglobin in the brain were measured by a magnetic resonance technique called blood oxygen level dependent imaging.
Oxygenated hemoglobin was thought to act as a scavenger, rapidly eliminating nitric oxide from the blood.
This saturation is the percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin compared to the total amount of hemoglobin, including carboxy-hemoglobin, methemeglobin, oxyhemoglobin and reduced hemoglobin.
Pulse oximeters provide clinicians with a non-invasive method of monitoring the percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin (Hb) in the blood stream, testing a patient's entire respiratory system with one simple measurement.
The NCCLS has recommended the use of the term "oxygen saturation" to indicate the amount of hemoglobin capable of transporting [O.sub.2] and "fractional [O.sub.2]Hb" to represent the fraction of oxygenated hemoglobin. The terms "fractional saturation" and "functional saturation" refer to the F[O.sub.2]Hb and S[O.sub.2], respectively.
