Method P.1173 left column top paragraph: "Beacause of this very wide range of reported values [of diffusion coefficients of oxygen through respiring tissues][investigators] decided to measure this value again by a technique essentially similar to that described by Longmuir (PMID 14418162 ref 5), but with the difference that the measurements were made on one slice of tissue at a time without the intrusion of "edge" effects."
