Absorption spectra of hemoglobin with intermediate oxygenation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Oximetry assumes that absorption spectra of hemoglobin depend linearly on oxygenation and is thereforetheweighted average of the fullyoxygenated and de-oxygenated hemoglobin spectra. We demonstrate how intermediately oxygenated hemoglobin spectra change nonlinearly.
