hmn i dont get exactly what you're saying =D but yeah i still dont get this one =/ I know during shock the kidneys are hit hardest (ATN) so extraction of arterial o2 would be high and venous o2 would be low but i thought during normal state renal venous o2 is the highest of all venous blood and cardiac coronary sinus the lowest of all.
