Dr. Been,

Starting at 26:30 you mention redistribution thus causing shunting. It was my understanding that the blood gets oxygenated during first 1/3 of capillary length and the remainder 2/3 serves as a reserve. In case of redistribution to patent vessels, the flow rate throught those vessels would increase. Wouldn't it still get 100% oxygenated due to that 2/3 reserve thus not creatung a "R->L shunt"?
