The increase in arterial elasticity correlated with the degree of increase in the ratio of polyunsaturated fatty acids to saturated fatty acids in the blood.
The gold-standard sample for blood-gas analysis is arterial blood obtained anaerobically via an indwelling arterial catheter (most often sited at the radial artery in adults and the umbilical artery in neonates), or arterial puncture.
