...Hilary M. Lease; Cornelis J. Klok; Alexander Kaiser; Jon F. Harrison SUMMARY Constraints on oxygen delivery potentially limit animal body size. Because diffusion rates are highly distance dependent, and because tracheal length increases with size, gas exchange was traditionally thought to be more...

..., one possible outcome would be that larger insect species would have a smaller safety margin for oxygen delivery (higher critical P O 2, P c ). We tested this idea by exposing inactive adult grasshoppers of a range of species and body sizes(0.07–6.4 g) to progressively lower oxygen atmospheres...

..., are designed to increase oxygen delivery. The current drug of choice, erythropoietin, can boost hematocrit dramatically and, until only recently, exogenous erythropoietin has been undetectable. This focus on boosting O 2 delivery seems to assume that humans do not conform to the general pattern of balance...
