  • The technique is based on the assumptions that the nitrogen concentration in the lungs is 78% and in equilibrium with the atmosphere, that the patient inhales 100% oxygen and that the oxygen replaces all of the nitrogen in the lungs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Could low oxygen (decreased lung expansion) decreases cardiac output? (healthtap.com)
  • A person may not be able to change how much oxygen their lungs can hold. (afrolatinconnection.com)
  • Mammals that regularly perform deep, long-duration dives have locomotor muscles with elevated myoglobin concentrations that are composed of predominantly large, slow-twitch (Type I) fibers with low mitochondrial volume densities ( V mt ). These features contribute to extending ADL by increasing oxygen stores and decreasing metabolic rate. (biologists.org)
  • Marine mammals dive on a single breath-hold, restricting access to oxygen to that which they carry within their lungs, blood and muscle ( Scholander, 1940 ). (biologists.org)
  • Diving mammals display several adaptations for increasing onboard oxygen stores, such as a large blood volume, hematocrit and hemoglobin concentration (reviewed by Snyder, 1983 ), as well as an enhanced concentration of myoglobin within their locomotor muscles (reviewed by Kooyman and Ponganis, 1998 ).

  • There, the blood in the lung capillaries readily absorbs oxygen and gives off carbon dioxide gathered from the body cells. (faqs.org)
  • The circulatory systemtransports oxygen-laden blood to the body cells and picks up carbon dioxide.The term respiration describes the exchange of gases across cell membranes both in the lungs (external respiration) and in the body tissues (internal respiration). (faqs.org)
  • After entering the lungs, the branches subdivide, finally emerging as capillaries which surround the alveoli and release the carbon dioxide in exchange for a fresh supply of oxygen. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • You will correlate lung volumes with a variety of clinical scenarios. (vernier.com)
  • Correlate lung volumes with clinical conditions. (vernier.com)
  • Although patients with poor PS [Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) PS ≥ account for 30-50% of those with advanced lung cancer in clinics, they are typically underrepresented in clinical trials possibly due to concerns about tolerability associated with experimental treatment, deterioration of PS, and reduced efficacy relative to patients with a good PS ( 2 - 6 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • Abnormal lung development in preterm infants caused by intrauterine and early postnatal factors 1 is characterised by impaired alveolarisation and dysmorphic vasculogenesis. (bmj.com)
  • This was a first recognition of the mechanical interplay between the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, nowadays referred to as heart-lung or cardiorespiratory interactions, which comprise the effects of respiration on circulation. (smw.ch)
  • Terminal bronchioles have a diameter of about 0.02 in (0.5 mm).The branching air-conducting network within the lungs is called the bronchial tree. (faqs.org)
