Wayne M. Samuelson
This volume contains the proceedings of the meeting of the International Society on Oxygen Transport to Tissue held in August 1994. The main themes of the conference were methods for assessment of oxygenation, physiology of oxygen transport, organ systems in disease, and restoration of impaired oxygenation. In these proceedings, the editors hope to provide a standard reference on oxygen in physiologic and pathophysiologic systems. This lofty goal is accomplished in great measure. These published proceedings represent the work of some world authorities on oxygen transport and delivery. The book is written for basic scientists in pulmonary medicine. Workers in the field of critical care medicine will also be interested. The editors and participants in the conference are respected authorities in the field. The black-and-white illustrations and diagrams are appropriate to the subject matter. Each chapter is referenced with pertinent references. The index is rather spare, but when used in combination with the table of contents, it is sufficient. As a compilation of the proceedings of an important international meeting, the book is unique in that it brings a variety of related works together as a single reference. It is essential to the advancement of scientific knowledge that workers in the field communicate, and these proceedings provide a forum for this exchange of information. The proceedings are valuable for all investigators in the field. Each subsequent edition provides new information reflecting the progress made since the last assembly. This volume is useful to basic scientists in pulmonary medicine and workers in the field of critical care. Clinicians will find this ofsomewhat lesser utility, although it would also be a useful reference for them.

This volume contains 84 transcripts of presentations, which are centered around four major topics: methods for assessment of oxygenation; the physiology of oxygen transport; organ system in disease; and restoration of oxygen in disease. Subjects include: cerebral oxygenation during cardiopulmonary bypass, reflectance pulse oximetry, the effect of capillary blood flow on the oxygen release into rat heart tissue, hypoxia/ischemia and the pH paradox, oxygen transport in tumors, the lung in distress, extracorporeal oxygenation, and pulmonary mechanics during laparoscopic surgery.
