This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).Hyperventilation: A pulmonary ventilation rate faster than is metabolically necessary for the exchange of gases. It is the result of an increased frequency of breathing, an increased tidal volume, or a combination of both. It causes an excess intake of oxygen and the blowing off of carbon dioxide.Extravascular Lung Water: Water content outside of the lung vasculature. About 80% of a normal lung is made up of water, including intracellular, interstitial, and blood water. Failure to maintain the normal homeostatic fluid exchange between the vascular space and the interstitium of the lungs can result in PULMONARY EDEMA and flooding of the alveolar space.Anoxia: Relatively complete absence of oxygen in one or more tissues.Cardiac Output: The volume of BLOOD passing through the HEART per unit of time. It is usually expressed as liters (volume) per minute so as not to be confused with STROKE VOLUME (volume per beat).Exercise Test: Controlled physical activity which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity.

It does not include the use of a bicycle in studying the body's response to physical exertion (BICYCLE ERGOMETRY TEST see EXERCISE TEST).Vital Capacity: The volume of air that is exhaled by a maximal expiration following a maximal inspiration.Spirometry: Measurement of volume of air inhaled or exhaled by the lung.Heart Rate: The number of times the HEART VENTRICLES contract per unit of time, usually per minute.Respiratory Transport: The processes of diffusion across the BLOOD-AIR BARRIER, and the chemical reactions coupled with diffusion that effect the rate of PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE, generally at the alveolar level.Dogs: The domestic dog, Canis familiaris, comprising about 400 breeds, of the carnivore family CANIDAE. They are worldwide in distribution and live in association with people.

It is found in the earth's crust and atmosphere as an inert, odorless gas and is used in vacuum tubes and incandescent lamps.Positive-Pressure Respiration: A method of mechanical ventilation in which pressure is maintained to increase the volume of gas remaining in the lungs at the end of expiration, thus reducing the shunting of blood through the lungs and improving gas exchange.Inhalation: The act of BREATHING in.Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis: A PULMONARY ALVEOLI-filling disease, characterized by dense phospholipoproteinaceous deposits in the alveoli, cough, and DYSPNEA.

  • Field dives are associated with moderate impairments in cardiac output and gas exchange. (bmj.com)
  • During oxygen-breathing systemic resistance and arterial pressure increase, while cardiac output and stroke volume tend to fall. (springer.com)
  • Respiratory gas exchange was investigated in human subjects immersed up to the shoulders in water at different temperatures (Tw = 25, 34, and 40 degrees C). Cardiac output (Qc) and pulmonary tissue volume (Vti) were measured by a rebreathing technique with the inert gas Freon 22, and O2 consumption (VO2) was determined by the closed-circuit technique. (nih.gov)
  • Alveolar oxygen uptake per min is the uptake of oxygen molecules into the passing pulmonary blood - into the cardiac output. (mednote.dk)
  • Differences in mean survival times were identified in children not more than 4 months of age with respect to the following diagnoses: impaired gas exchange, ineffective breathing pattern, activity intolerance, delayed growth and development, and decreased cardiac output. (redorbit.com)
  • MSC therapy significantly decreased tissue oxidative damage by controlling reactive oxygen species production. (hindawi.com)
  • Our data suggests that from young to middle-age, a well-regulated capillary oxygen supply maintains the oxygen availability in cerebral tissue, despite decreased tissue pO 2 next to arterioles. (nature.com)
  • Despite its critical importance, to our knowledge, there is no data available in the literature regarding brain tissue pO 2 (oxygen partial pressure) changes with age. (nature.com)
  • Myoblast proliferation is also inhibited by the ,20% oxygen level used in standard tissue culture. (ebscohost.com)
  • Destruction of the alveolar walls and the breakdown of elastic tissue and collagen is the result of this. (respiratorytherapyzone.com)
  • The process of getting oxygen into the body for tissue utilization and the removal of CO2 into the atmosphere. (respiratorytherapyzone.com)
  • Considerable description of the phenomenon of intermittent breathing and cardiovascular shunting (often in restrained and/or anaesthetised animals) existed, but their implications to tissue gas exchange were just beginning to be explored. (biologists.org)
  • The tissue here is so thin and delicate that gas molecules can pass back and forth between the blood and the hollow sac they enclose and that's how oxygen move back and forth from the "outside" to your blood. (wordpress.com)
  • This tissue is so delicate it has to be protected and there are a number of defense mechanisms to guard the business end (the gas exchange system) from dirt, bacteria, viruses, etc. (wordpress.com)
