Coronary Oxygen Delivery Determinants:

  • Coronary blood flow - resistance, pressure (duration), cardiac output

  • Hemoglobin - amount, kind

  • HbO2 dissociation curve

  • Cardiac myoglobin

  • Capillary - myocyte distance (10-13 um)

  • Capillary density ( 1 : 1 )

  • RBC deformability, rheology (e.g. sickle cell)
