Remembering the preceding findings concerning the dynamics of the O2-state in the human organism at high temperature and following treatment by means of the 15-minute rapid O2-multistep process with physical load the methods used for the routine determination of sufficiently representative values of the indicators for the O2 state are discussed. On this basis a new 25-minute rapid O2-multi-step process of great simplicity with utilization of the natural increase of the heart period volume and the respiratory period volume at high temperature is derived and the beginning great improvement of the O2-state is confirmed by measurements. The new process is based on the idea to use the late phase of high temperature for the evocation of the detected connection process of blood microcirculation by a supply of 25 l min-1 of pure oxygen lasting 25 minutes (via a mask applicator). The rapid O2-multi-step process stated deserves to be rapidly studied broadly on account of its multivalent effect and to be introduced. In this connection are particularly to be emphasized the shortening of the rehabilitation period after high temperature to few hours and the support of the patient's circulation.
