Effects of intravenous oxygenated Hartmann’s solution on oxygenation and hemodynamics in hypoxemic rats. Breathing 0.1 FiO2, rats (n = 6/group) received an intravenous infusion of 10 ml/kg/h of oxygenated (intravenous O2) or normal Hartmann’s solution (controls) over 3 h. Arterial O2 tension (PO2), arterial and central venous O2 saturation (SO2), muscle and liver tissue PO2, mean arterial pressure, arterial base excess (ABE), and lactate are expressed as mean ± standard error. Heart rate and stroke volume are expressed as median [first to third quartile]. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, and ***p < 0.001 versus baseline in the intravenous O2 group; # p < 0.05, ## p < 0.01, and ### p < 0.001 versus baseline in the control group (repeated measure two-way analysis of variance with Bonferroni’s post hoc test or Friedman test with Dunn’s post hoc test)
