Total oxygen content in the body
The situation with total one's
is even more complex. Blood flow to differentorgans is greatly influenced by the autoregulation effect that can change the perfusion of certainorgans up to 3-4 times. Autoregulation takes place due to various bodily processes, such asdigestion, sleep, exercise, adaptation to temperature changes, emotions, local and globalinfections, local inflammation, and many others. Therefore, the total picture is very complex and,from the purely technical viewpoint, one's total body-oxygen content is exceptionally difficultand expensive to measure.
