The failure by the observer to measure or identify a phenomenon accurately, which results in an error. Sources for this may be due to the observer's missing an abnormality, or to faulty technique resulting in incorrect test measurement, or to misinterpretation of the data. Two varieties are inter-observer variation (the amount observers vary from one another when reporting on the same material) and intra-observer variation (the amount one observer varies between observations when reporting more than once on the same material).

Double-blind intervention trial on modulation of ozone effects on pulmonary function by antioxidant supplements. (1/1040)

The aim of this study was to investigate whether the acute effects of ozone on lung function could be modulated by antioxidant vitamin supplementation in a placebo-controlled study. Lung function was measured in Dutch bicyclists (n = 38) before and after each training session on a number of occasions (n = 380) during the summer of 1996. The vitamin group (n = 20) received 100 mg of vitamin E and 500 mg of vitamin C daily for 15 weeks. The average ozone concentration during exercise was 77 microg/m3 (range, 14-186 microg/m3). After exclusion of subjects with insufficient compliance from the analysis, a difference in ozone exposure of 100 microg/m3 decreased forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) 95 ml (95% confidence interval (CI) -265 to -53) in the placebo group and 1 ml (95% CI -94 to 132) in the vitamin group; for forced vital capacity, the change was -125 ml (95% CI -384 to -36) in the placebo group and -42 ml (95% CI -130 to 35) in the vitamin group. The differences in ozone effect on lung function between the groups were statistically significant. The results suggest that supplementation with the antioxidant vitamins C and E confers partial protection against the acute effects of ozone on FEV1 and forced vital capacity in cyclists.  (+info)

Evaluation of pulmonary volumetric morphometry at the light and electron microscopy level in several species of passerine birds. (2/1040)

The lungs of 3 small passerine species, having similar body mass but different diurnal activity patterns, were analysed morphometrically to assess the relationship between diurnal activity and pulmonary volumetry at the light and electron microscope levels. The percentage volumes of the major lung and exchange tissue components of the 3 species--an aerial insectivore, a foliage gleaner/nectarivore and a ground forager--were strikingly similar, and consistent with literature values for other passerine species. The only significant difference found was exchange tissue plasma volume and pulmonary haematocrit, with the ground-foraging, low activity Malurus splendens having significantly lower values than the other 2 species. This may indicate that cardiovascular parameters are more important determinants of metabolic activity in small passerines than aspects of pulmonary anatomy.  (+info)

Expiratory and inspiratory chest computed tomography and pulmonary function tests in cigarette smokers. (3/1040)

This study evaluated small airway dysfunction and emphysematous destruction of lung parenchyma in cigarette smokers, using chest expiratory high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and pulmonary function tests (PFT). The degree of emphysematous destruction was classified by visual scoring (VS) and the average HRCT number at full expiration/full inspiration (E/I ratio) calculated in 63 male smokers and 10 male nonsmokers (group A). The Brinkman smoking index (BI), defined as cigarettes x day(-1) x yrs, was estimated. Sixty-three smokers were divided into three groups by PFT: group B1 (n=7), with normal PFT; group B2 (n=21), with diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide (DL,CO) > or = 80% predicted, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) < 80% pred and/or residual volume (RV) > 120% pred; and group B3 (n=35), with DL,CO < 80% pred, FEV1 < 80% pred and/or RV > 120% pred. Heavy smokers (BI > or = 600) (n=48) showed a significant increase in emphysema by both VS and E/I. E/I was significantly elevated in both group B2 (mean+/-SD 0.95+/-0.05) and B3 (0.96+/-0.06) compared with group B1 (0.89+/-0.03). VS could not differentiate group B2 (3.9+/-5.0) from B1 (1.1+/-1.6). These findings suggest that the expiration/inspiration ratio reflects hyperinflation and airway obstruction, regardless of the functional characteristics of emphysema, in cigarette smokers.  (+info)

Human lung volumes and the mechanisms that set them. (4/1040)

Definitions of human lung volumes and the mechanisms that set them are reviewed in the context of pulmonary function testing, with attention to the distinction between functional residual capacity (FRC) and the static relaxation volume of the respiratory system, and to the circumstances in which FRC and residual volume are set by dynamic rather than by static mechanisms. Related terms, conventions, and issues are addressed, including some common semantic and conceptual difficulties, with attention to "gas trapping", "hyperinflation", and "restriction".  (+info)

Compliance and stability of the bronchial wall in a model of allergen-induced lung inflammation. (5/1040)

Airway wall remodeling in response to inflammation might alter load on airway smooth muscle and/or change airway wall stability. We therefore determined airway wall compliance and closing pressures in an animal model. Weanling pigs were sensitized to ovalbumin (OVA; ip and sc, n = 6) and were subsequently challenged three times with OVA aerosol. Control pigs received 0.9% NaCl (n = 4) in place of OVA aerosol. Bronchoconstriction in vivo was assessed from lung resistance and dynamic compliance. Semistatic airway compliance was recorded ex vivo in isolated segments of bronchus, after the final OVA aerosol or 0.9% NaCl challenge. Internally or externally applied pressure needed to close bronchial segments was determined in the absence or presence of carbachol (1 microM). Sensitized pig lungs exhibited immediate bronchoconstriction to OVA aerosol and also peribronchial accumulations of monocytes and granulocytes. Compliance was reduced in sensitized bronchi in vitro (P < 0.01), and closing pressures were increased (P < 0.05). In the presence of carbachol, closing pressures of control and sensitized bronchi were not different. We conclude that sensitization and/or inflammation increases airway load and airway stability.  (+info)

System identification of closed-loop cardiovascular control mechanisms: diabetic autonomic neuropathy. (6/1040)

We applied cardiovascular system identification (CSI) to characterize closed-loop cardiovascular regulation in patients with diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN). The CSI method quantitatively analyzes beat-to-beat fluctuations in noninvasively measured heart rate, arterial blood pressure (ABP), and instantaneous lung volume (ILV) to characterize four physiological coupling mechanisms, two of which are autonomically mediated (the heart rate baroreflex and the coupling of respiration, measured in terms of ILV, to heart rate) and two of which are mechanically mediated (the coupling of ventricular contraction to the generation of the ABP wavelet and the coupling of respiration to ABP). We studied 37 control and 60 diabetic subjects who were classified as having minimal, moderate, or severe DAN on the basis of standard autonomic tests. The autonomically mediated couplings progressively decreased with increasing severity of DAN, whereas the mechanically mediated couplings were essentially unchanged. CSI identified differences between the minimal DAN and control groups, which were indistinguishable based on the standard autonomic tests. CSI may provide a powerful tool for assessing DAN.  (+info)

Thoracic gas volume in early childhood. (7/1040)

A total body plethysmograph is descirbed which was used to study thoracic gas volume (TGV) in infants and young children from birth to 2 1/2 years, and was suitable for use even in very sick babies. Normal TGV values were obtained in 42 studies of 35 healthy infants and young children, and 16 children with abnormal lung volume are described. TGV correlated well with length, weight, chest circumference, and age in the healthy infants. A low TGV was found in children with respiratory difficulties after cardiac and thoracic surgery, in respiratory distress syndrome of the newborn, and in association with pulmonary infection and chest cage abnormalities. Abnormally high TGV was most frequently seen in infants with small airways disease.  (+info)

Comparison of two new methods for the measurement of lung volumes with two standard methods. (8/1040)

BACKGROUND: The two most commonly used methods for the measurement of lung volumes are helium dilution and body plethysmography. Two methods have been developed which are both easier and less time consuming to perform. Mathematical modelling uses complex calculations from the flow-volume loop to derive total lung capacity (TLC), and the nitrogen balance technique uses nitrogen from the atmosphere to calculate lung volume in a similar way to helium dilution. This study was designed to compare the two new methods with the two standard methods. METHODS: Sixty one subjects were studied, 23 with normal lung function, 17 with restrictive airway disease, and 21 with obstructive ventilatory defects. Each subject underwent repeated measurements of TLC by each of the four methods in random order. Reproducible values were obtained for each method according to BTS/ARTP guidelines. Bland-Altman plots were constructed for comparisons between the methods and paired t tests were used to assess differences in means. RESULTS: Bland-Altman plots showed that the differences between body plethysmography and helium dilution fell into clinically acceptable ranges (agreement limits +/-0.9 l). The agreement between mathematical modelling or the nitrogen balance technique and helium dilution or body plethysmography was poor (+/-1.8-3.4 l), especially for subjects with airflow obstruction. CONCLUSIONS: Neither of the new methods agrees sufficiently with standard methods to be useful in a clinical setting.  (+info)

A translational preterm pig model analogous to infants born at 28 weeks of gestation revealed that continuous positive airway pressure results in limited lung recruitment but does not prevent respiratory distress syndrome (RDS); whereas, assist-control + volume guarantee (AC+VG) ventilation improves recruitment, but can cause injury, highlighting the need for improved ventilation strategies. We determined whether airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) can be used to recruit the immature lungs of preterm pigs without injury. Spontaneously breathing pigs delivered at 89% of term (model for 28 week infants) were randomized to 24 hours of APRV (n=9) versus AC+VG with a tidal volume of 5ml/kg (n=10). Control pigs (n=36) were provided with supplemental oxygen by an open mask. Nutrition and fluid support was provided throughout the 24-hour period. All pigs supported with APRV and AC+VG survived 24 hours, compared to 62% of control pigs. APRV resulted in improved lung volume recruitment compared ...
In a modified case-control study of obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), airways obstruction has been found to be associated with age, sex, protease inhibitor type, socioeconomic status (SES) and smoking. In this paper patterns of forced expiratory flows are examined in persons demonstrating various risk factors. Two broad patterns of flow limitation emerge. The first pattern, characterized by lower flows at high lung volumes, is found in first-degree relatives of patients with COPD and subjects with a low SES. This pattern, consistent dysfunction of large airways, may reflect reversible decreases of airway caliber. The second pattern, characterized by lower flows at low lung volumes, is found in older subjects. This pattern, consistent with nonhomogeneously emptying lungs or dysfunction of small airways, may reflect more chronic irreversible changes. Smokers and male subjects exhibit both patterns of flow limitation when compared with subjects who had never smoked and female subjects. It is possible
Fig. 19. Pressure-volume curve of a normal subject (dashed curve) and of a patient with ARDS (solid curve). The pressure-volume curve is shifted downwards on the volume axis and has a reduced total lung capacity (TLC). The sigmoid shape of the curve is much more evident in ARDS. Note the small amount of pressure at the start of the ARDS pressure-volume curve, indicating a small amount of intrinsic PEEP (PEEPi) at end-expiratory lung volume (EELV). Some investigators divide the curve into linear segments: Cstart, Cinf or Clin, and Cend (explained below). Using these segments, the upper and lower Pflex (the pressure at the intersection of 2 lines: a low compliance region at low lung volumes [Cstart] and a higher compliance region at higher lung volumes [Cinf]) were defined by the intersection of these lines. The lower (LIP) and upper (UIP) inflection points are defined by where the curve first begins to deviate from the line Clin. Mathematically, these are not inflection points; the true ...
Some PFTs involve the use of a spirometer. The spirometer is an instrument that measures the amount of air breathed in and/or out and how quickly the air is inhaled and expelled from the lungs while breathing through a mouthpiece. The measurements are recorded on a device called a spirograph.. Other test results are derived from calculations based on the results of certain spirometry procedures. In addition to measuring the amount and rate of air inhaled and exhaled, these tests can also indicate how well oxygen and carbon dioxide are being exchanged in the alveoli.. Some PFTs, such as thoracic gas volume or other lung volume measurements, may be determined by plethysmography. During plethysmography, a person sits or stands inside an air-tight box that resembles a short, square telephone booth to perform the tests.. The normal values for PFTs vary from person to person. The amount of air inhaled and exhaled in your test results are compared to the expected average in someone of the same age, ...
Keeping your chest clear requires an effective cough which requires a high flow of air. People with neuromuscular diseases often have weakness of their respiratory muscles which impacts on being able to take a big breath and/or cough. Because of this they may be unable to create a high flow of air which can increase the risk of chest infections. Lung and chest wall movement also reduces over time with neuromuscular conditions - breath stacking can help to maintain lung and chest wall movement.. It may be needed due because the patient has: ...
The presence of large inspiratory decreases in ITP and breathing at high lung volume are the main characteristics explaining the occurrence of pulsus paradoxus during acute asthma.. The large decrease in ITP during inspiration (-30- -20 mmHg) 37 can affect systolic arterial pressure through both direct (passive transmission along the arterial tree) and indirect (decrease in LVSV) mechanisms. Jardin et al. 37, studying nine patients with acute asthma, reported a mean inspiratory decrease in systolic arterial pressure of 41 mmHg, in arterial pulse pressure of 23 mmHg and in diastolic arterial pressure of 18 mmHg. The decrease in pulse pressure suggests that LVSV decreases at inspiration while the large decrease in diastolic pressure suggests that passive transmission of ITP along the arterial tree does not play a minor role.. It is far from certain that pulsus paradoxus in acute asthma is only the exaggeration of the inspiratory decrease in systolic arterial pressure in healthy subjects. In both ...
S. K. Srivastava and Pallavi Sinha. In the present study, the Anderson-Isaak approximation for volume dependence of the Anderson-Grüneisen parameter is modified with the addition of an assumption regarding the volume dependence of thermoelastic parameter (k). New expressions for volume dependence of δT and thermal expansivity are obtained; those follow the constraints of high pressure thermodynamics in the limit of infinite pressure. The modified expression is used to estimate temperature dependence of elastic moduli for NaCl. A close agreement between theory and experiment reveals the validity of present approach.. Keywords: Anderson-Grüneisen parameter; thermal expansivity; elastic constants. full text (IP). ...
Pulmonary Function Test (PFT) is a group of tests designed to measure how well the lungs take in and release air and how well gases such as oxygen move into the body?s circulation. A PFT is done to: diagnose certain types of disease (such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema), find the cause of shortness of breath, assess the effect of medications and measure progress in disease treatment. There are 4 different tests to measure the function of your lungs: spirometry, forced inhalation or exhalation, lung volume measurement, and diffusion capacity.. ...

Sixteen patients (48-75 years) after CABG in CPB were studied postoperatively every 0.5 h during 3 h while mechani cally ventilated (FiO2 1.0) with measurements of end-expiratory lung volume (EELV) and blood gases. Eight patients were randomized to LR (45 cmH2O airway pressure 2 × 20 s) after which PEEP was set 1 cmH2O , LIP obtained from a static P-V curve (PEEP group), while the 8 other were randomized to LR only (ZEEP group). Three inspiratory P-V (including EELV) curves were obtained in both groups. In the PEEP-group, the first curve (A ◎) was obtained before LR and PEEP, the second (B ○) during PEEP (14 ± 3 cmH2O, mean ± SD) 2.5 h after LR, and the third (C △) 0.5 h after removal of PEEP, i.e. 3 h after LR. In the ZEEP group, P-V curves were obtained at similar times. ...
Whereas the points earlier in this paper focus on the work of breathing during a single breath or from breath to breath, research in this area fails to acknowledge that simply increasing the mandatory IMV rate, thereby reducing the percentage of the minute ventilation required via spontaneous breathing, in fact reduces the work of breathing. Work of breathing during IMV is also impacted by choice of the patient population, appropriate application of PEEP, system for IMV delivery, and appropriate use of mandatory breath rate and size to assist in lung inflation and carbon dioxide removal.. IMV augments spontaneous breathing with mandatory breaths, which act as a sigh to remove carbon dioxide and prevent alveolar collapse. Paramount to the success of IMV is patient selection (ie, a patient with low lung volumes, tachypnea, hypoxemia, and normo- to hypocapnia). Under these conditions, the judicious use of PEEP to restore end-expiratory lung volume and position the patient on the steep portion of ...
The invention includes a method for performing non-surgical lung volume reduction in a patient by applying an amount of energy with a catheter to a diseased alveolar region of the lung of a patient having emphysema, wherein the amount of energy is sufficient to damage the epithelial cells and the epithelial barrier within the diseased alveolar region of the lung and collapse at least a portion of said region thereby reducing the lung volume, and wherein the energy comprises thermal energy, electrical energy, and ultrasonic energy.
The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of manipulating lung volume (LV) on phonatory and articulatory kinematic behavior during sentence production in healthy adults. Five men and five women repeated the sentence I sell a sapapple again under five LV conditions. These included (1) speaking normally, (2) speaking after exhaling most of the air from the lungs, (3) speaking at end expiratory level (EEL), (4) speaking after a maximal inhalation, and (5) speaking after a maximal inhalation while attempting to maintain as normal a mode of speech as possible. From a multichannel recording, measures were made of LV, sound pressure level (SPL), fundamental frequency (F0) and semitone standard deviation (STSD), and upper and lower lip displacements and peak velocities. When compared with the reference condition, the sentence was spoken significantly more quickly at the lowest LV. SPL increased significantly for the high LV condition, as did the womens F0 and STSD. Upper lip displacements ...
Data from the Tucson epidemiological study of airways obstructive disease on smoking of non-tobacco cigarettes such as marijuana were analysed to determine the effect of such smoking on respiratory symptoms and pulmonary function. Among adults aged under 40, 14% had smoked non-tobacco cigarettes at some time and 9% were current users. The prevalence of respiratory symptoms was increased in smokers of non-tobacco cigarettes. After tobacco smoking had been controlled for men who smoked non-tobacco cigarettes showed significant decreases in expiratory flow rates at low lung volumes and in the ratio of the forced expiratory volume in one second to the vital capacity. This effect on pulmonary function in male non-tobacco cigarette smokers was greater than the effect of tobacco cigarette smoking. These data suggest that non-tobacco cigarette smoking may be an important risk factor in young adults with respiratory symptoms or evidence of airways obstruction. ...
In this paper we develop a method to estimate lung volume using chest x-rays of small mammals. We applied this method to assess the lung volume of several rodents. We showed that a good estimator of the lung volume is: V*L = 0.496 · V RX ≈ 1/2·V RX , where V RX is a measurement obtained from the x-ray that represents the volume of a rectangular box containing the lungs and mediastinum organs. The proposed formula may be interpreted as the volume of an ellipsoid formed by both lungs joined at their bases. When that relationship was used to estimate lung volume, values similar to those expected from allometric relationship were found in four rodents. In two others, M. musculus and R. norvegicus, lung volume was similar to reported data, although ...
Ipratropiumbromide (Atrovent ) is an ammonium-containing muscarinic antagonist (i.e. an anticholinergic agent) that conceptually may decrease sputum production with resulting increase in lung volume defined by end-expiratory lung volume (EELV) and improved oxygenation. However, its efficacy on these outcomes is unclear that warrants further study to rationalise this supportive treatment ...

In order to standardize lung volume, we performed a LR manoeuvre and ventilated the patients with PEEP set at 1 cmH2O above LIP for 30 min before the ETS. This produced mean increases in lung volume and PaO2 of approximately 150 ml and 3 kPa, respectively. Interestingly, one patient (no. 2) changed lung injury category after the first standardization period from ARDS to ALI, and after the second standardization period that patient did not fulfil either the ARDS nor the ALI criteria of PaO2:FiO2 ratio [17]. Both lung volumes and compliance values may appear high for this type of patient but agree well with values found by Brochard and coworkers [13], who used computed tomography in patients with acute respiratory failure. Few studies have examined the reduction in lung volume caused by ETS. Brochard and coworkers [13] found that ETS caused an immediate reduction in EELV by about 400 ml in acute respiratory failure, and in patients with ALI and ARDS Pesenti and coworkers [10] identified a ...

Spirometry measures airflow. By measuring how much air you exhale, and how quickly, spirometry can evaluate a broad range of lung diseases. In a spirometry test, while you are sitting, you breathe into a mouthpiece that is connected to an instrument called a spirometer. The spirometer records the amount and the rate of air that you breathe in and out over a period of time.. For some of the test measurements, you can breathe normally and quietly. Other tests require forced inhalation or exhalation after a deep breath. Sometimes you will be asked to inhale the substance or a medicine to see how it changes your test results.. Lung volume measurement can be done in two ways:. - The most accurate way is to sit in a sealed, clear box that looks like a telephone booth (body plethysmograph) while breathing in and out into a mouthpiece. Changes in pressure inside the box help determine the lung volume.. - Lung volume can also be measured when you breathe nitrogen or helium gas through a tube for a ...
The cross-sectional shapes of the chest and its contained structures have been assessed in post-mortem anatomical sections and from computerised tomographic scans in living subjects. These shapes are described by simple equations that can be used to increase the accuracy of measuring lung volumes from chest radiographs. Radiographic estimates of total lung capacity, using the equations, were compared with plethysmographic and single-breath helium dilution measurements in 35 normal subjects. The postures commonly used for taking chest radiographs were found, on average, to decrease total lung capacity (TLC) and to increase residual volume by about 200 ml when compared with the sitting positions used for the other two measurements (studies made in 18 of the subjects). After correction for this effect, the radiographic estimates of TLC, which measure the displacement volume of the lung, exceeded the plethysmographic estimates of contained gas volume by a mean of 720 ml, which was taken as the ...
Increased (more positive) end-expiratory and decreased (more negative) end-inspiratory values for intrapleural pressure (PpI) invariably accompany acute bronchoconstriction. We hypothesize that both the increase in vital capacity (VC) and the decrease in residual volume (RV) observed after dilation …
Prospective multicenter study in 30 mechanically ventilated patients with ARDS in five university hospital ICUs. Two PEEP levels were studied, each for 45 min, and EELV (nitrogen washout/washin technique) was measured at both levels, with the difference (Δ) reflecting PEEP-induced lung volume changes. Alveolar recruitment was measured using pressure-volume (PV) curves. High and low recruiters were separated based on median recruitment at high PEEP. Minimum predicted increase in lung volume computed as the product of ΔPEEP by static compliance was subtracted from ΔEELV as an independent estimate of recruitment. Estimated and measured recruitments were compared. Strain induced by PEEP was also calculated from the same measurements.. ...
Our data from the INPULSIS trials have shown for the first time that placebo-treated patients with a baseline FVC ,90% predicted have the same rate of FVC decline over the following year as patients with greater impairment in lung volume and the same likelihood of disease progression defined as an absolute decline in FVC % predicted ≥10% or death. It is notable that over 40% of placebo-treated patients with an FVC ,90% predicted at baseline, a subgroup that represented over 25% of patients recruited into the INPULSIS trials, reached this disease progression endpoint after 1 year. Furthermore, over 75% of placebo-treated patients with an FVC ,90% predicted at baseline had an absolute decline in FVC % predicted of ≥5% after 1 year, suggesting that fewer than one in four patients with preserved lung volume at baseline had stable FVC over the following year. Treatment with nintedanib slowed the annual rate of decline in FVC in patients with FVC ,90% and ≤90% predicted to the same extent. These ...

Women demonstrate lower diffusing capacity-to-cardiac output ratio (DlCO/Q̇), pulmonary capillary blood volume (Vc), and membrane diffusing capacity (Dm) compared with height-matched men during exercise. However, these differences disappear after correction for lung size. The drop in DlCO/Q̇ was proportionally less in women, and pulmonary transit time did not drop below 0.3 s in either group. After differences in lung volume are accounted for, there is no intrinsic sex difference in DlCO, Vc, or Dm response to exercise. ...
BACKGROUND: The multiple-breath washout (MBW) is able to provide information about the distribution of ventilation-to-volume (v/V) ratios in the lungs. However, the classical, all-parallel model may return skewed results due to the mixing effect of a common dead space. The aim of this work is to examine whether a novel mathematical model and algorithm is able to estimate v/V of a physical model, and to compare its results with those of the classical model. The novel model takes into account a dead space in series with the parallel ventilated compartments, allows for variable tidal volume (VT) and end-expiratory lung volume (EELV), and does not require a ideal step change of the inert gas concentration ...

Threatened with deflation, the authorities will want to turn the tide in the worst possible way. Whats the worst way to stop deflation? With hyperinflation. Yes, we may suffer a year or two more of sluggish growth... or even deflation. Stocks will crash and people will be desperate for paper dollars. But sooner or later, the feds will find their feet and lose their heads. Most likely, the credit-drenched world of 2015 will end... not in a whimper of deflation, but in a bang. Hyperinflation will bring the long depression to a dramatic close long before a quarter of a century has passed.

N2 - Single breath oxygen (SBO2) tests at expiratory flow rates of 0.2, 0.5, and 1.01/s were performed by 10 normal subjects in a body plethysmograph. Closing capacity (CC) the absolute lung volume at which phase IV began increased significantly with increases in flow. Five subjects were restudied with a 200 ml bolus of 100% N2 inspired from residual volume after N2 washout by breathing 100% O2 and similar results were obtained. An additional five subjects performed SBO2 tests in the standing, supine and prone positions; closing volume (CV), the lung volume above residual volume at which phase IV began, also increased with increases of expiratory flow. The observed increase in CG with increasing flow did not appear to result from dependent lung regions reaching some critical closing volume at a higher overall ...
Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) is the volume of air present in the lungs at the end of passive expiration. At FRC, the opposing elastic recoil forces of the lungs and chest wall are in equilibrium and there is no exertion by the diaphragm or other respiratory muscles. FRC is the sum of Expiratory Reserve Volume (ERV) and Residual Volume (RV) and measures approximately 2400 mL in an 80 kg, average-sized male. It cannot be estimated through spirometry, since it includes the residual volume. In order to measure RV precisely, one would need to perform a test such as nitrogen washout, helium dilution or body plethysmography. A lowered or elevated FRC is often an indication of some form of respiratory disease. For instance, in emphysema, FRC is increased, because the lungs are more compliant and the equilibrium between the inward recoil of the lungs and outward recoil of the chest wall is disturbed. As such, patients with emphysema often have noticeably broader chests due to the relatively ...

Unilateral airway occlusion permits measurement of single lung function. Since the results suggest that the occluded lung influences the mobility of the contralateral hemithorax, we wanted to test this hypothesis. In eight healthy subjects, we measured, using computed tomography, lung parenchymal area and inner rib cage parasagittal and transverse diameters at three different levels and at maximal inspiration and expiration. These measurements were made without and during balloon occlusion of one mainstem bronchus at residual volume (RV) and at total lung capacity (TLC). Unilateral occlusion at RV reduced the ipsilateral diameters in maximal inspiration, but the increase during inspiration was still 39-50% of that without occlusion. The inspiratory increase in contralateral diameters was reduced to 64-80% of the increase without occlusion. Occlusion at TLC reduced the expiratory decrease in ipsilateral diameters to 37-57% of that without occlusion. The expiratory decrease on the contralateral ...

1. Starting at 50% vital capacity, boluses of 133Xe were inhaled either at very low or maximal flow rates, the inspiration terminating at total lung capacity (TLC). Flow-dependent changes in bolus distribution were examined by measuring regional radioctivity and computing regional time-constants, and also by recording alveolar plateaux during the subsequent vital capacity expiration. Regional residual volumes, as a fraction of regional total lung capacities, were also calculated. Three groups of subjects were studied: young non-smokers, young cigarette smokers, and older non-smokers.. 2. All three groups gave similar results in terms of regional time-constants though there was less variation in the results for young non-smokers.. 3. Regional residual volumes also gave similar results in all groups although again there was less variation in young non-smokers. In young smokers, residual volumes in some regions depended on the flow rate used in their measurement, which indicated intraregional ...
The effectiveness of strategies for treatment of the altered static lung volume and against the development of bronchial hyperreactivity (BHR) following a left ventricular dysfunction (LVD) induced by myocardial ischaemia was investigated in a rat model of sustained postcapillary pulmonary hypertension. Airway resistance (Raw) was identified from the respiratory system input impedance (Zrs) in four groups of rats. End-expiratory lung volume (EELV) was determined plethysmographically, and Zrs was measured under baseline conditions and following iv infusions of 2, 6 or 18 μg/kg/min methacholine. Sham surgery was performed in the rats in Group C, while the left interventricular coronary artery was ligated and Zrs and its changes following identical methacholine challenges were reassessed in the same rats 8 weeks later, during which no treatment was applied (Group I), or the animals were treated daily with a combination of an angiotensin enzyme converter inhibitor and a diuretic (enalapril and furosemide,

To quantify the contribution of lung volume dependence of upper airway (UA) on continuous negative airway pressure (CNAP)-induced increase in upper airway resistance, we compared the changes in supralaryngeal resistance during an isolated decrease in lung volume and during CNAP in eight normal awake subjects. Inspiratory supralaryngeal resistance was measured at isoflow during four trials, during two CNAP trials where the pressure in a nasal mask was progressively decreased in 3- to 5-cmH2O steps and during two continuous positive extrathoracic pressure (CPEP) trials where the pressure around the chest (in an iron lung) was increased in similar steps. The CNAP and CPEP trials were done in random order. During the CPEP trial, the neck was covered by a rigid collar to prevent compression by the cervical seal of the iron lung. In each subject, resistance progressively increased during the experiments. The increase was linearily correlated with the pressure increase in the iron lung and with the ...
Scaling also has an effect on the performance of organisms in fluid. This is extremely important for marine mammals and other marine organisms that rely on atmospheric oxygen to survive and carry out respiration. This can affect how fast an organism can propel itself efficiently and more importantly how long it can dive, or how long and how deep an organism can stay underwater. Heart mass and lung volume are important in determining how scaling can affect metabolic function and efficiency. Aquatic mammals, like other mammals, have the same size heart proportional to their bodies. Mammals have a heart that is about 0.6% of the total body mass across the board from a small mouse to a large Blue Whale. It can be expressed as: Heart Weight = 0.006Mb1.0, where Mb is the body mass of the individual.[39] Lung volume is also directly related to body mass in mammals (slope = 1.02). The lung has a volume of 63 ml for every kg of body mass. In addition, the tidal volume at rest in an individual is 1/10 the ...
Answer: A. Functional residual capacity. Pre-oxygenation is the administration of oxygen to a patient prior to intubation. It helps to extend the safe apnoea time. The safe apnoea time is defined as the duration of time following cessation of breathing/ventilation that elapses until arterial desaturation occurs (SaO2 reaches , 90%). The primary mechanism by which pre-oxygenation works is by denitrogenation of the lungs, however maximal pre-oxygenation is achieved when the alveolar, arterial, venous and tissue compartments are all filled with oxygen. Denitrogenation is achieved using oxygen to wash out the nitrogen contained in the lungs after breathing room air, resulting in a larger alveolar oxygen reservoir.. The functional residual capacity (FRC) is the volume of gas that remains in the lungs after a normal tidal expiration. It is the sum of the residual volume (RV) and the expiratory reserve volume (ERV). One method of measuring the FRC is the nitrogen washout technique.. The FRC is ...

Lung volumes in sex-, age-, height-, and weight-matched Black subjects are 10-15% lower than those in Caucasians. To determine whether this decreased lung volume affected the ventilatory adaptation to exercise, minute ventilation (VE), its components, frequency (f) and tidal volume (VT), and breathing pattern were observed during incremental cycle-ergometer exercise. Eighteen Caucasian (age 8-30 yr) and 14 Black (age 8-25 yr) subjects were studied. Vital capacity (VC) was lower (P less than 0.001) in the Black subjects [90.6 +/- 8.6 (SD) vs. 112.9 +/- 9.9% predicted], whereas functional residual capacity/total lung capacity was higher (P less than 0.05). VE, mixed expired O2 and CO2, VT, f, and inspiratory (TI), expiratory (TE), and total respiratory cycle (TT) duration were measured during the last 30 s of each 2-min load. Statistical comparisons with increasing power output were made at rest and from 0.6 to 2.4 W/kg in 0.3-W/kg increments. VE was higher in Blacks at all work loads and reached ...

Anatomical studies suggest that normal lungs grow by rapid alveolar addition until about 2 yrs of age followed by a gradual increase in alveolar dimensions. The aim of this study was to examine the hypothesis that normal lung growth can be monitored by computed tomography (CT). Therefore, the gas volume per gram of lung tissue was estimated from measurements of lung density obtained from CT scans performed on children throughout the growth period. CT scans were performed on 17 males and 18 females, ranging in age from 15 days-17.6 yrs. CT-measured lung weight was correlated with predicted post mortem values and CT measured gas volume with predicted values of functional residual capacity. The median value for lung expansion was 1.86 mL·g-1 at 15 days, decreased to 0.79 mL·g-1 by 2 yrs and then increased steadily to 5.07 mL·g-1 at 17 yrs. Computed tomography scans can be used to estimate lung weight, gas volume and expansion of normal lungs during the growth period. The increase in the lung ...
The 2019 standard also provides additional guidance on the quality assessment for slow VC maneuvers. Specifically, the stability of the preceding tidal breathing is defined as having at least three tidal breaths, with end-expiratory lung volume within 15% of the tidal volume. For some patients this stable tidal breathing is hard to achieve. In their case the test should be allowed to go ahead after 10 tidal breaths, but the parameter IC should not be reported, as it is no longer reliable. ...
The flow-volume (FV) loop was introduced by Hyatt and associates in 1958. Its potential as a means of assessing lung function has been discussed. There are, however, few reports of its use in clinical studies. The purpose of this study was to add to the data on normal subjects and to quantify the differences between normal subjects and patients with selected types of lung disease. The FV curve was
This is a substantial and well-designed study, which was terminated prematurely when it became clear that a large-volume ventilatory strategy was harming those subjects subjected to this conventional ventilatory approach. Patient selection and management appears impeccable, and the number of patients in this multi-centre trial (861) are impressive. Although two other ARDS-related trials were conducted simultaneously on the same patients (ketoconazole versus placebo, and lisofylline versus placebo) these do not appear to have biased the study in any way. (As an aside, the ketoconazole showed no benefit, and the lisofylline trial is awaited). Certain definitions within the protocols deserve close examination. Wisely, the authors related ventilatory parameters to a predicted body weight. This is appropriate because critically ill patients often have weights that are grossly divergent from their predicted weight, while one would expect pulmonary volumes to correlate well with predicted weight. The ...

36 The use of external PEEP in the setting of auto-PEEP may be conceptualized by the waterfall over a dam analogy. In this analogy, the presence of dynamic hyperinflation and 10 cmH20 of auto-PEEP is represented in the top panel by the reservoir of water trickling over the dam represented by the solid block. In the middle panel, as long as the external PEEP is less than or equal to the amount of auto-PEEP, the amount of water in the upstream reservoir, representing dynamic hyperinflation, does not increase. However, once the amount of water in the reservoir does increase (bottom panel), dynamic hyperinflation worsens. ...

  • Inspired and expired lung volumes measured by spirometry are useful for detecting, characterising and quantifying the severity of lung disease. (
  • By measuring how much air you exhale, and how quickly you exhale, spirometry can evaluate a broad range of lung diseases. (
  • Spirometry findings showed a severe restrictive lung disease, with a forced expiratory volume in one second of 0.4 L/s and a forced vital capacity of 0.5 L. (
  • When diagnosing COPD, a doctor assesses symptoms and administers a spirometry test to evaluate how well the lungs are working. (
  • Comprehensive lung function testing (measurement of spirometry with bronchodilator reversibility, lung volumes using plethysmography, gas transfer and small airway indices) is available. (
  • 1999). Before initiating corticosteroid therapy, a baseline chest radiograph, high resolution CT, complete pulmonary function tests (including lung volumes, spirometry, and diffusing capacity), and exercise testing, with arterial blood gas measurements, should be performed. (
  • The most important of these tests include spirometry, measurement of lung volumes and measurement of how well the air spaces in the lungs transfer oxygen to the blood (called diffusion capacity). (
  • The major types of lung function tests include spirometry, measurement of lung volumes, and quantitation of diffusing capacity (discussed below) but your doctor may order other tests if they deem them necessary. (
  • Patients underwent spirometry with maximal flow-volume curve and lung volumes and diffusion lung capacity (DLCO) measurements. (
  • This is defined in spirometry as a reduction in the ratio of the expiratory volume measured in the 1st second of a forceful exhalation (FEV1) to the total volume of air exhaled in the forced expiration (FVC), the FVC being an estimate of the individual's effective lung volume. (

  • These lung diseases are called obstructive lung disorders. (
  • Other lung diseases make the lungs scarred and smaller so that they contain too little air and are poor at transferring oxygen into the blood. (
  • Muscular weakness can also cause abnormal test results, even if the lungs are normal, that is, similar to the diseases that cause smaller lungs. (

  • The first is intrinsic lung diseases or diseases of the lung parenchyma. (
  • The diseases cause inflammation or scarring of the lung tissue (interstitial lung disease) or result in filling of the air spaces with exudate and debris (pneumonitis). (
  • They include idiopathic fibrotic diseases, connective-tissue diseases, drug-induced lung disease, environmental exposures (inorganic and organic dusts), and primary diseases of the lungs (including sarcoidosis). (
  • Diseases of these structures result in lung restriction, impaired ventilatory function, and respiratory failure (eg, nonmuscular diseases of the chest wall, neuromuscular disorders). (
  • Restrictive lung diseases are characterized by a reduction in FRC and other lung volumes because of pathology in the lungs, pleura, or structures of the thoracic cage. (
