In Response To: Thanks, Joan and a question (Mary Jackson)


This is not my area of expertise, but I enjoy
acting as reference librarian. (Onward, To the Stacks!!)
Here's my quick guess - with a book in front of me--

Oxygenation in the body depends more on hemoglobin transport,
not just dissolved oxygen in serum. (we can't rely on passive osmosis).
Dehydration, however, does concentrate the red blood cells, causing
increased blood viscosity.
It's the sluggish movement of crowded red blood cells,
to and from the lungs, that delays the transport of
oxygen, so a cyanosis can occur when a person is dehydrated.

That's cribbing from Savage, FIshman, & Miller,
(1993) Essentials of Basic Science in Surgery

None of the authors is a relative!
