To the editor: A commentary from me in the February 1979 issue (1) contains an error I failed to detect in the original manuscript.

The error occurs in the example I used to illustrate blood gas correction. It should read, “For example, a patient with a core temperature of 27 °C and a pH of 7.10 and a Po2 of 75 mm Hg would have, with correction for temperature, a tissue-level pH of 7.25 and a Po2 of 20 mm Hg.” The original listed the first Po2 as 20 mm Hg.
