The isolated heart, typically perfused with crystalloid media equilibrated with >/=95% O2 to ensure adequate myocardial oxygen tension, is commonly used to study cardiac function. When hemoglobin is available for oxygen transport, equilibration with 21% O2 is considered adequate to meet metabolic demands. This study presents the measurement of myocardial pO2 in isolated hearts perfused with an erythrocyte suspension. Baseline myocardial pO2 in erythrocyte-perfused hearts was 16.4+/-3.5 mmHg (mean+/-s.e.). When compared to previous measurements of myocardial pO2 in isolated hearts perfused with crystalloid media, the use of erythrocyte suspensions resulted in a 10-fold lower level of myocardial pO2, while avoiding very low and high values. The standard use of 95% oxygen with crystalloid results in myocardial levels of oxygen far above those usually found in the presence of hemoglobin and room air.
