Description Blood Oxygen enables the user to change variables like the PO2, hemoglobin concentration, and hemoglobin's affinity for oxygen and calculate the concentrations of oxygen in the form of oxyhemoglobin and dissolved oxygen. Simulations include anemia, polycythemia, comparing the effects of oxygen inhalation in a pulmonary "patient" with a normal person, carbon monoxide poisoning, hyperbaria, etc., as well as the concepts of the Fick Principle and the arteriovenous oxygen difference.

Suggested Use

I would use it as a graduate level exercise and perhaps for professional students (such as the nurse anesthetist student) to help them mathematically correlate relationships vs. just memorizing equations. Exercises cover a wide-range of scenarios affecting Hct/PO2.

Excellent program to study how the oxygen carrying capacity of blood can be altered under a variety of physiological and non-physiological conditions.
