Acute saline infusion reduces alveolar-capillary membrane conductance and increases airflow obstruction in patients with left ventricular dysfunction. (1/1644)

BACKGROUND: Impaired alveolar-capillary membrane conductance is the major cause for the reduction in pulmonary diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCO) in heart failure. Whether this reduction is fixed, reflecting pulmonary microvascular damage, or is variable is unknown. The aim of this study was to assess whether DLCO and its subdivisions, alveolar-capillary membrane conductance (DM) and pulmonary capillary blood volume (Vc), were sensitive to changes in intravascular volume. In addition, we examined the effects of volume loading on airflow rates. METHODS AND RESULTS: Ten patients with left ventricular dysfunction (LVD) and 8 healthy volunteers were studied. DM and Vc were determined by the Roughton and Forster method. The forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), vital capacity, and peak expiratory flow rates (PEFR) were also recorded. In patients with LVD, infusion of 10 mL. kg-1 body wt of 0.9% saline acutely reduced DM (12.0+/-3.3 versus 10.4+/-3.5 mmol. min-1. kPa-1, P<0.005), FEV1 (2.3+/-0.4 versus 2.1+/-0.4 L, P<0.0005), and PEFR (446+/-55 versus 414+/-56 L. min-1, P<0.005). All pulmonary function tests had returned to baseline values 24 hours later. In normal subjects, saline infusion had no measurable effect on lung function. CONCLUSIONS: Acute intravascular volume expansion impairs alveolar-capillary membrane function and increases airflow obstruction in patients with LVD but not in normal subjects. Thus, the abnormalities of pulmonary diffusion in heart failure, which were believed to be fixed, also have a variable component that could be amenable to therapeutic intervention.  (+info)

Peripheral muscle ergoreceptors and ventilatory response during exercise recovery in heart failure. (2/1644)

Recent studies have suggested that the increased ventilatory response during exercise in patients with chronic heart failure was related to the activation of muscle metaboreceptors. To address this issue, 23 patients with heart failure and 7 normal subjects performed arm and leg bicycle exercises with and without cuff inflation around the arms or the thighs during recovery. Obstruction slightly reduced ventilation and gas exchange variables at recovery but did not change the kinetics of recovery of these parameters compared with nonobstructed recovery: half-time of ventilation recovery was 175 +/- 54 to 176 +/- 40 s in patients and 155 +/- 66 to 127 +/- 13 s in controls (P < 0.05, patients vs. controls, not significant within each group from baseline to obstructed recovery). We conclude that muscle metaboreceptor activation does not seem to play a role in the exertion hyperventilation of patients with heart failure.  (+info)

Continuous arterial P(O2) and P(CO2) measurements in swine during nitrous oxide and xenon elimination: prevention of diffusion hypoxia. (3/1644)

BACKGROUND: During nitrous oxide (N2O) elimination, arterial oxygen tension (PaO2) decreases because of the phenomenon commonly called diffusive hypoxia. The authors questioned whether similar effects occur during xenon elimination. METHODS: Nineteen anesthetized and paralyzed pigs were mechanically ventilated randomly for 30 min using inspiratory gas mixtures of 30% oxygen and either 70% N2O or xenon. The inspiratory gas was replaced by a mixture of 70% nitrogen and 30% oxygen. PaO2 and carbon dioxide tensions were recorded continuously using an indwelling arterial sensor. RESULTS: The PaO2 decreased from 119+/-10 mm Hg to 102+/-12 mm Hg (mean+/-SD) during N2O washout (P<0.01) and from 116+/-9 mm Hg to 110+/-8 mm Hg during xenon elimination (P<0.01), with a significant difference (P<0.01) between baseline and minimum PaO2 values (deltaPaO2, 17+/-6 mm Hg during N2O washout and 6+/-3 mm Hg during xenon washout). The PaCO2 value also decreased (from 39.3+/-6.3 mm Hg to 37.6+/-5.8 mm Hg) during N2O washout (P<0.01) and during xenon elimination (from 35.4+/-1.6 mm Hg to 34.9+/-1.6 mm Hg; P< 0.01). The deltaPaCO2 was 1.7+/-0.9 mm Hg in the N2O group and 0.5+/-0.3 mm Hg in the xenon group (P<0.01). CONCLUSION: Diffusive hypoxia is unlikely to occur during recovery from xenon anesthesia, probably because of the low blood solubility of this gas.  (+info)

Breathing patterns during slow and fast ramp exercise in man. (4/1644)

Breathing frequency (fb), tidal volume (VT), and respiratory timing during slow (SR, 8 W min-1) and fast (FR, 65 W min-1) ramp exercise to exhaustion on a cycle ergometer was examined in seven healthy male subjects. Expiratory ventilation (VE), pulmonary gas exchange (VO2 and VCO2) and end-tidal gas tensions (PET,O2 and PET,CO2) were determined using breath-by-breath techniques. Arterialized venous blood was sampled from a dorsal hand vein at 2 min intervals during SR and 30 s intervals during FR and analysed for arterial plasma PCO2 (PaCO2). PET,CO2 increased with increasing work rates (WRs) below the ventilatory threshold (VT); at WRs > or = 90% VO2,max, PET,CO2 was reduced (P < 0.05) below 0 W values in SR but not in FR.fb and VT were similar for SR and FR at all submaximal WRs, resulting in a similar VE. At exhaustion VE was similar but fb was higher (P < 0.05) and VT was lower (P < 0.05) in SR (fb, 51 +/- 10 breaths min-1; VT, 2590 +/- 590 ml) than in FR (fb, 42 +/- 8 breaths min-1; VT, 3050 +/- 470 ml). The time of expiration (TE) decreased with increasing WR, but there was no difference between SR and FR. The time of inspiration (TI) decreased at exercise intensities > or = VT; at exhaustion, TI was shorter (P < 0.05) during SR (0.512 +/- 0.097 s) than during FR (0.753 +/- 0.100 s). The TI to total breath duration (TI/TTot) and the inspiratory flow (VT/TI) were similar during SR and FR at all submaximal exercise intensities; at VO2,max, TI/TTot was lower (P < 0.05) and VT/TI was higher (P < 0.05) during SR (TI/TTot, 0.473 +/- 0.030; VT/TI, 5.092 +/- 0.377 l s-1) than during FR (TI/TTot, 0.567 +/- 0.050; VT/TI, 4.117 +/- 0.635 l s-1). These results suggest that during progressive exercise, breathing pattern and respiratory timing may be determined, at least at submaximal work rates, independently of alveolar and arterial PCO2.  (+info)

Airway closure, atelectasis and gas exchange during general anaesthesia. (5/1644)

Airway closure and the formation of atelectasis have been proposed as important contributors to impairment of gas exchange during general anaesthesia. We have elucidated the relationships between each of these two mechanisms and gas exchange. We studied 35 adults with healthy lungs, undergoing elective surgery. Airway closure was measured using the foreign gas bolus technique, atelectasis was estimated by analysis of computed x-ray tomography, and ventilation-perfusion distribution (VA/Q) was assessed by the multiple inert gas elimination technique. The difference between closing volume and expiratory reserve volume (CV-ERV) increased from the awake to the anaesthetized state. Linear correlations were found between atelectasis and shunt (r = 0.68, P < 0.001), and between CV-ERV and the amount of perfusion to poorly ventilated lung units ("low Va/Q", r = 0.57, P = 0.001). Taken together, the amount of atelectasis and airway closure may explain 75% of the deterioration in PaO2. There was no significant correlation between CV-ERV and atelectasis. We conclude that in anaesthetized adults with healthy lungs, undergoing mechanical ventilation, both airway closure and atelectasis contributed to impairment of gas exchange. Atelectasis and airway closure do not seem to be closely related.  (+info)

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation: effect of CPAP on gas exchange during chest compressions. (6/1644)

BACKGROUND: Conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) includes 80-100/min precordial compressions with intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV) after every fifth compression. To prevent gastric insufflation, chest compressions are held during IPPV if the patient is not intubated. Elimination of IPPV would simplify CPR and might offer physiologic advantages, but compression-induced ventilation without IPPV has been shown to result in hypercapnia. The authors hypothesized that application of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) might increase CO2 elimination during chest compressions. METHODS: After appropriate instrumentation and measurement of baseline data, ventricular fibrillation was induced in 18 pigs. Conventional CPR was performed as a control (CPR(C)) for 5 min. Pauses were then discontinued, and animals were assigned randomly to receive alternate trials of uninterrupted chest compressions at a rate of 80/min without IPPV, either at atmospheric airway pressure (CPR(ATM)) or with CPAP (CPR(CPAP)). CPAP was adjusted to produce a minute ventilation of 75% of the animal's baseline ventilation. Data were summarized as mean +/- SD and compared with Student t test for paired observations. RESULTS: During CPR without IPPV, CPAP decreased PaCO2 (55+/-28 vs. 100+/-16 mmHg) and increased SaO2 (0.86+/-0.19 vs. 0.50+/-0.18%; P < 0.001). CPAP also increased arteriovenous oxygen content difference (10.7+/-3.1 vs. 5.5+/-2.3 ml/dl blood) and CO2 elimination (120+/-20 vs. 12+/-20 ml/min; P < 0.01). Differences between CPR(CPAP) and CPR(ATM) in aortic blood pressure, cardiac output, and stroke volume were not significant. CONCLUSIONS: Mechanical ventilation may not be necessary during CPR as long as CPAP is applied. Discontinuation of IPPV will simplify CPR and may offer physiologic advantage.  (+info)

Hemodynamic effects of bilevel nasal positive airway pressure ventilation in patients with heart failure. (7/1644)

AIMS: Benefits of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in patients presenting with chronic heart failure (CHF) are controversial. The purpose of this study was to compare the hemodynamic effects of CPAP and bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) in patients with or without CHF. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty patients with CHF and 7 with normal left ventricular function underwent cardiac catheterization. Measurements were made before and after three 20-min periods of BiPAP: expiratory positive airway pressure (EPAP) = 8 cm H2O and inspiratory positive airway pressure (IPAP) = 12 cm H2O, EPAP = 10 cm H2O and IPAP = 15 cm H2O, and CPAP = EPAP = IPAP = 10 cm H2O administered in random order. Positive pressure ventilation decreased cardiac output (CO) and stroke volume. No change was observed in either pulmonary or systemic arterial pressure. There was no difference in the hemodynamic effects of the three ventilation settings. Only mean pulmonary wedge pressure (MPWP) and heart rate were lower with CPAP than with BiPAP. CO decreased only in patients with low MPWP (+info)

A chest wall restrictor to study effects on pulmonary function and exercise. 2. The energetics of restrictive breathing. (8/1644)

Chest wall restriction, whether caused by disease or mechanical constraints such as protective outerwear, can cause decrements in pulmonary function and exercise capacity. However, the study of the oxygen cost associated with mechanical chest restriction has so far been purely qualitative. The previous paper in this series described a device to impose external chest wall restriction, its effects on forced spirometric volumes, and its test-retest reliability. The purpose of this experiment was to measure the oxygen cost associated with varied levels of external chest wall restriction. Oxygen uptake and electromyogram (EMG) of the external intercostals were recorded during chest restriction in 10 healthy males. Subjects rested for 9 min before undergoing volitional isocapnic hyperpnea for 6 min. Subjects breathed at minute ventilations (V.I) of 30, 60, and 90 liters/min with chest wall loads of 0, 25, 50 and 75 mm Hg applied. Frequency of breathing was set at 15, 30, and 45 breaths per minute with a constant tidal volume (VT) of 2 liters. Oxygen uptake was measured continuously at rest and throughout the hyperventilation bouts, while controlling V.I and VT. Integrated EMG (IEMG) from the 3rd intercostal space was recorded during each minute of rest and hyperventilation. Two-way ANOVA with repeated measures revealed that chest wall loading and hyperpnea significantly increased V.O2 values (p < 0.01). External intercostal IEMG levels were significantly increased (p < 0.05) at higher restrictive load (50 and 75 mm Hg) and at the highest minute ventilation (90 liters/min). These data suggest that there is a significant and quantifiable increase in the oxygen cost associated with external chest wall restriction which is directly related to the level of chest wall restriction.  (+info)

Our results are in keeping with those of previous studies [13,14] that have shown that PC-IRV did not improve PaO2compared with traditional CMV with PEEP, when the comparison is made at equal levels of PEEP, while keeping the other ventilator variables constant. Lessard et al. [14] also observed a lower PaO2with PC-IRV compared with conventional ventilation with PEEP. Similarly, these authors did not find a significant change in cardiac output with PC-IRV. Mercat et al. [13] and Lessard et al. [14] used higher levels of PEEPtthan in the present study, namely from 11 to 14 cmH2O. This, however, indicates that our negative results with IRV cannot be attributed to insufficient PEEPt. [6] We cannot compare our results obtained with inverse I:E ratio ventilation with those of most previous studies because of lack of information on the level of PEEPtused due to uncontrolled modifications in the ventilator settings after implementation of IRV. Clearly, we cannot exclude the possibility that different ...

Purpose: To investigate the influence of prior heavy- and severe-intensity exercise on the oxygen uptake (V·O2) kinetics and the power-duration relationship. Methods: Ten cyclists performed 13 exercise tests over a 4 week period, consisting of a ramp test to determine the gas exchange threshold (GET) and the peak V·O2, followed by a series of square-wave tests to exhaustion under three conditions: no prior exercise (control), prior heavy exercise (6 min at a work rate above GET but below critical power (CP)) and prior severe exercise (6 min at a work rate above the CP). Pulmonary gas exchange was measured throughout the exhaustive exercise bouts and the parameters of the power duration relationship (CP and the curvature constant, W) were determined from the linear work-time model. Results: Prior heavy exercise increased the amplitude of the primary V·O2 response (by ~0.19 ± 0.28 L·min-1, P = 0.001), reduced the slow component trajectory (by 0.04 ± 0.09 L·min-2; P = 0.002) and increased ...

Little is known about the mechanistic basis for the exercise intolerance characteristic of patients with respiratory disease; a lack of clearly defined, distinct patient groups limits interpretation of many studies. The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the pulmonary oxygen uptake ( $$ \overset{.}{V} $$ O2) response, and its potential determinants, in patients with emphysema and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Following a ramp incremental test for the determination of peak $$ \overset{.}{V} $$ O2 and the gas exchange threshold, six emphysema (66 ± 7 years; FEV1, 36 ± 16%), five IPF (65 ± 12 years; FEV1, 82 ± 11%) and ten healthy control participants

Fig. 14-8]). · The flow and flux relations implies the following shunt equation: Eq. 14-9: Q° shunt/ Q° total = (CaO2 - Cc´02)/( Cv¯O2 - Cc´02). · The CO-Oxy-haemoglobin affinity equation: Eq. 14-10: CaCO/PaCO = 250* CaO2/PaO2.

A rebreathing method for measuring carbon monoxide transfer factor (TLCO) and transfer coefficient (KCO) is evaluated. The test was performed on 42 subjects. Seventeen of these had normal lung function while the remainder suffered from various conditions, most having fibrosing alveolitis. No patients with severe airways obstruction were included in the group. The results were compared with single-breath measurements and close correlations were found between single-breath KCO and rebreathing KCO (r = 0.78, p less than 0.001) and between single-breath TLCO and rebreathing TLCO (r = 0.97, p less than 0.001). The reasons for discrepancies between single-breath and rebreathing values are discussed. It is concluded that measurement of rebreathing gas transfer is a useful supplement to routine tests of lung function, particularly in breathless patients with a small vital capacity.. ...
Background Patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc) may develop exercise intolerance due to musculoskeletal involvement, restrictive lung disease, left ventricular dysfunction, or pulmonary vasculopathy (PV). The latter is particularly important since it may lead to lethal pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). We hypothesized that abnormalities during cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in patients with SSc can identify PV leading to overt PAH. Methods Thirty SSc patients from the Harbor-UCLA Rheumatology clinic, not clinically suspected of having significant pulmonary vascular disease, were referred for this prospective study. Resting pulmonary function and exercise gas exchange were assessed, including peakVO2, anaerobic threshold (AT), heart rate- VO2 relationship (O2-pulse), exercise breathing reserve and parameters of ventilation-perfusion mismatching, as evidenced by elevated ventilatory equivalent for CO2 (VE/VCO2) and reduced end-tidal pCO2 (PETCO2) at the AT. Results Gas exchange patterns
Introduction. Animal/Plant Gas Exchange Our planet is lively in many ways. Everything on Earth is part of one system, so Gas Exchange could be discussed under Cycles, Interliving, or under Balance. Everything really is connected to everything else. Every living organism must exchange gases to stay alive. We each take in a gas (breathing) we need from the atmosphere, use it to make food or transform food, and release the leftover part of the gas, which the living cells have chemically changed into a different gas. Animals take in oxygen gas, transfer it to their blood, and carry it to every cell, where it is used to transform food into energy, where carbon dioxide gas is created as a by-product or leftover. more.

The study, appearing in the Journal of Geophysical Research - Biogeosciences, suggests that the size of water bodies can affect the rate at which greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, move from ponds and lakes into the atmosphere.. Although gas exchange in larger lakes can be predicted by wind speed, this relationship breaks down under low-wind conditions, such as in small ponds, said Meredith Holgerson, the lead author of the study, who conducted the research while completing her Ph.D. at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES).. We found that we cant easily predict gas exchange rates in small ponds, and that variability in gas exchange increases with lake size, said Holgerson, who is now a research fellow at Portland State University. This is important because gas exchange variability is not well accounted for in global models of greenhouse gas emissions from inland waters, but needs to be.. Researchers measured the rate of gas exchange between water ...

Previous studies in children and older adults demonstrated faster oxygen uptake (V̇O2) kinetics in males compared with females, but young healthy adults have not been studied. We hypothesized that young men would have faster aerobic system dynamics in response to the onset of exercise than women. Interactions between oxygen supply and utilization were characterized by the dynamics of V̇O2, deoxyhemoglobin (HHb), tissue saturation index (TSI), cardiac output (Q̇), and calculated arteriovenous O2 difference (a-vO2diff) in women and men. Eighteen healthy active young women and men (9 of each sex) with similar aerobic fitness levels volunteered for this study. Participants performed an incremental cardiopulmonary treadmill exercise test and 3 moderate-intensity treadmill exercise tests (at 80% V̇O2 of gas exchange threshold). Data related to the moderate exercise were submitted to exponential data modelling to obtain parameters related to the aerobic system dynamics. The time constants of V̇O2, ...

Abstract. Commonly, the micrometeorological parameters that underline the calculations of surface atmosphere exchange fluxes (e.g. friction velocity and sensible heat flux) and parameters used to model exchange fluxes with SVAT-type parameterisations (e.g. latent heat flux and canopy temperature) are measured with a single set of instrumentation and are analysed with a single methodology. This paper evaluates uncertainties in these measurements with a single instrument, by comparing the independent results from nine different institutes during the international GRAMINAE integrated field experiment over agricultural grassland near Braunschweig, Lower Saxony, Germany. The paper discusses uncertainties in measuring friction velocity, sensible and latent heat fluxes, canopy temperature and investigates the energy balance closure at this site. Although individual 15-min flux calculations show a large variability between the instruments, when averaged over the campaign, fluxes agree within 2% for ...

As shown in this figure, the system is based upon a number of linked mathematical models of physiology, which enable simulation of changes in the patient when modifying ventilator settings. Input to these models are measurements, including: end tidal O2 and CO2, SpO2, respiratory flows and pressures, the ventilators current settings and user input values of arterial blood gas. These inputs are used by the mathematical model in two ways: a) to learn about the patient and b) to provide appropriate advice.. Learning about the patient is performed by tuning the mathematical models so that they describe the individual patients current measurements and settings. In doing so the patient is described in terms of their metabolism, lung mechanics, pulmonary gas exchange, acid-base status and respiratory drive. The system continues to learn about the patient as new measurements present. In this way the system adapts to the patients physiological changes, with every new measurement or change in ...

The second question is actually far more interesting and forms the basis of a famous physiology experiment. Rebreathing air results in an increase in both resp rate and tidal volume in humans, both these things increase minute ventilation (which is a product of the two things, TV x RR) There is also a rebreathing experiment where soda lime is used to absorb the CO2 from the rebreathed air. However it is very dangerous as it can result in loss of consciousness as humans respond more to CO2 drive and if the CO2 in the inhaled air is zero, this can result in not enough oxygenated haemoglobin in the blood ...

N2 - New Findings: What is the central question of this study? The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of alterations in tidal volume and alveolar volume on the elevated physiological dead space and the contribution of ventilatory constraints thereof in heart failure patients during submaximal exercise. What is the main finding and its importance? We found that physiological dead space was elevated in heart failure via reduced tidal volume and alveolar volume. Furthermore, the degree of ventilatory constraints was associated with physiological dead space and alveolar volume. Abstract: Patients who have heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) exhibit impaired ventilatory efficiency [i.e. greater ventilatory equivalent for carbon dioxide (VE/VCO2 slope] and elevated physiological dead space (VD/VT). ...

Method: Twentyeight participants performed an incremental-cycle ergometer test to exhaustion. The VT was determined from the relationship between the ventilatory equivalent for oxygen uptake (V E/VO2) versus VO2 and the GET was determined using the V-slope method (VCO2 vs. VO2). The RCP ...
Impaired pulmonary gas exchange is a common complication of general anaesthesia. Periodic hyperinflation of the lungs and large tidal volume ventilation were the first preventive measures to be widely embraced, but their effectiveness in clinical practice has never been clearly established by controlled clinical studies. To assess their effects in high-risk patients we studied 24 adults having lower abdominal gynaecological surgery in the Trendelenburg (head down) position. Pulmonary oxygen exchange was determined during four steady-states: awake control (AC), after 30 min of conventional tidal volume (CVT, 7.5 or high tidal volume (HVT, 12.7 ventilation, introduced in random order, and five minutes after manual hyperinflations (HI) of the lungs. The patients lungs were ventilated with air/O2 by an Ohmeda volume-controlled ventilator via a circle system. The FIO2 was controlled at 0.5, and FETCO2 was controlled by adding dead space during HVT. Arterial blood gas analysis was ...
Experimental studies have demonstrated that the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in blood rapidly equilibrates with the partial pressure of carbon dioxide in the alveolar space (Alveolar Carbon Dioxide) early in its course through the pulmonary capillaries. In other words, the partial pressure gradient of carbon dioxide across the alveolar membrane is eliminated early on as blood moves through the pulmonary capillaries. Consequently, pulmonary gas exchange of carbon dioxide is perfusion-limited. It appears that few physiological or pathological scenarios can change this perfusion-limited character of carbon dioxide transport and thus we do not discuss this topic further ...
Effect of propofol and isoflurane on gas exchange parameters following one-lung ventilation in thoracic surgery: a double-blinded randomized controlled clinical trial
During constant work-rate exercise above the lactic acidosis threshold, oxygen consumption fails to plateau by 3 minutes, but continues to rise slowly. This slow component correlates closely with the rise in lactate in normal subjects. We investigated if oxygen consumption during constant work-rate exercise could rise after 3 minutes in the absence of a rise in lactate. We studied five patients with McArdles disease, one patient with phosphofructokinase deficiency and six normal subjects. Subjects performed two 6-minute duration constant work-rate exercise tests at 40 and 70% of peak oxygen consumption. During low-intensity exercise, oxygen consumption reached steady state by 3 minutes in both groups. Lactate rose slightly in control subjects but not in patients. During high-intensity exercise, oxygen consumption rose from the third to the sixth minute by 144 (21-607) ml/minute (median and range) in control subjects and by 142 (73-306) ml/minute in patients (p = not significant, Mann-Whitney U ...
Mechanical ventilation is a therapeutic method used in order to keep gas exchange adequate to cell metabolism in patients with acute respiratory failure. It is currently proved that, although on one hand the use of this method keeps gas exchange, on the other hand it promotes and supports pulmonary inflammatory processes (VILI). A recent study about the effect of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on DLCO (diffusing capacity of the lung for carbon monoxide) in patients undergoing invasive mechanical ventilation has proved that patients without any evident pulmonary disease (negative medical history, negative chest clinical examination, normal chest X-ray radiography and normal arterial oxygen tension [PaO2]) after 24 hours of invasive mechanical ventilation show a significant worsening of pulmonary gas exchange properties. The authors have supposed that this worsening may be caused by an early alteration of alveolar-capillary membrane caused by mechanical ventilation itself. This hypothesis ...

It has become increasingly apparent that congestive heart failure (CHF) affects not only the cardiovascular system, but every organ system involved with oxygen transport, including the respiratory system, skeletal muscles, and the hormonal and neural feedback control systems for breathing, cardiac output, blood pressure, blood volume, and distribution of blood flow. One segment of this transport system cannot be isolated from the rest. The ventilatory response to exercise in patients with CHF is augmented despite normal arterial O2 saturation and a normal or low end-tidal Pco2.1 2 3 4 5 6 The augmented ventilatory response is measured as a steep slope of the increase in ventilation with respect to CO2 output (ΔV̇e/ΔV̇co2) or as a high V̇e/V̇co2 ratio at peak exercise. The source of this ventilatory augmentation has been controversial, but its pathophysiological significance is clear. A high slope at submaximal exercise or a high V̇e/V̇co2 ratio at peak exercise is a powerful index of ...
The effects of pharmacologically elevated metabolism on respiration and parabronchial gas exchange were studied in the anesthetized, spontaneously breathing duck using 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP), injected in successive single doses of 1.2-2.5 mg per kg body mass. Oxygen uptake, MO2, increased with the cumulative amount of DNP, reaching a sevenfold resting level at the highest DNP level tolerated, 15 mg/kg. Ventilation increased nearly as much as MO2, mainly by an increase in respiratory frequency, fresp. Cardiac output increased somewhat less than MO2, mediated by increases in both cardiac frequency and stroke volume. Arterial blood-gases showed little change; however, mixed venous PO2 dropped significantly, and PCO2 increased significantly, with stimulated metabolism. Pulmonary diffusing capacity, DO2, showed a significant rise with MO2, beyond that expected from a reduction of functional lung heterogeneity. The results show that pharmacological stimulation of metabolism can evoke responses in the

As the treatment armamentarium in heart failure becomes increasingly complex and diverse, clinical strategies, based on functional capacity, to effectively triage patients with systolic heart failure into distinct prognostic subgroups are necessary. Peak oxygen uptake (PkVO2) measured during exercise not only allows accurate evaluation of exercise capacity, but also has been shown to be a strong independent predictor of survival in chronic heart failure (1,2). Initially, Mancini and colleagues (3) demonstrated that a PkVO2 of ,14 ml/kg/min identified a low-risk cohort of patients. The survival of these patients was not improved by transplantation, and Mancini et al. (3) recommended that a PkVO2 of 14 ml/kg/min be used as a discriminator for those being considered for transplantation. Subsequently, investigators have sought further refinements in this particular criterion, and other gas exchange variables have been evaluated for their predictive strengths, including percent predicted PkVO2(4,5), ...
Gas exchange is the biological process by which gases move passively by diffusion across a surface. Typically, this surface is - or contains - a biological membrane that forms the boundary between an organism and its extracellular environment. Gases are constantly consumed and produced by cellular and metabolic reactions in most living things, so an efficient system for gas exchange between, ultimately, the interior of the cell(s) and the external environment is required. Small, particularly unicellular organisms, such as bacteria and protozoa, have a high surface-area to volume ratio. In these creatures the gas exchange membrane is typically the cell membrane. Some small multicellular organisms, such as flatworms, are also able to perform sufficient gas exchange across the skin or cuticle that surrounds their bodies. However, in most larger organisms, which have a small surface-area to volume ratios, specialised structures with convoluted surfaces such as gills, pulmonary alveoli and spongy ...

Previous studies have shown that rain significantly enhances the rate of air-water gas exchange. However, even though an empirical correlation between the rain rate or kinetic energy flux (KEF) delivered to the water surface by rain and the gas transfer velocity has been established, the physical mechanisms underlying the gas exchange enhancement remain unexamined. During a series of experiments, the processes behind rain-induced air-water gas exchange were examined at NASAs Rain-Sea Interaction Facility (RSIF). Gas transfer velocities for helium (He), nitrous oxide (N2O), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) were determined for 22 rain rates (13.6 to 115.2 mm h(-1)) and three drop sizes (2.3, 2.8, 4.2 mm). Bubbles generated by the raindrops were characterized using a video-microscope technique, and surface waves were characterized by a capacitance probe. Additionally, rain-generated turbulence was inferred from friction velocities u(*w) calculated from KEF. Together, these data suggest that ...

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) is a gold-standard element of evaluation of patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), a disease of exercise. The initial rationale for cardiologists was that peak oxygen uptake (peakVO2) served as a surrogate of cardiac output. The breakthrough of CPX, however, came when Mancinis group showed that the prognostic importance of a peakVO2 threshold of 14 mL/kg/min eclipsed that of all other major clinical or functional variables (including left ventricular EF) in their cohort.1 In the ensuing years its dominance has been gnawed away, first by the increasingly disappointing rate of replication in other studies,2 and second by the emergence of alternative markers from the same test3 that focus on efficiency of pulmonary gas exchange.. In the current issue of this journal Ingle et al4 report on the predictive power of CPX data on all-cause mortality in patients with mild to moderate chronic heart failure.. For individual variables they found optimal cut points ...

Respiratory arrest is caused by apnea (cessation of breathing) due to failure of the lungs to function effectively. Apnea is defined as the cessation of breathing. Prolonged apnea refers to a patient who has stopped breathing for a long period of time. If the heart muscle contraction is intact, the condition is known as respiratory arrest. An abrupt stop of pulmonary gas exchange lasting for more than five minutes may damage vital organs especially the brain, possibly permanently. Lack of oxygen to the brain causes loss of consciousness. Brain injury is likely if respiratory arrest goes untreated for more than three minutes, and death is almost certain if more than five minutes. Damage may be reversible if treated early enough. Respiratory arrest is a life-threatening medical emergency that requires immediate medical attention and management. To save a patient suffering from respiratory arrest, the goal is to restore adequate ventilation and prevent further damage. Management interventions ...

The pathophysiology underlying hypoxaemia in COVID-19 is controversial [3-5]. This study identifies intrapulmonary shunt as a major pathophysiological mechanism. Shunt severity was predictive of worse outcome: length of stay; CPAP duration; and mortality. Furthermore, shunt correlated with CRP and LDH, but not D-dimer. VA/Q mismatch, although present, was not prognostic.. Micro and macrovascular thrombosis within the pulmonary architecture [5] have been implicated in the pathogenesis of COVID-19 hypoxaemia. Dual-energy CT-scans identified profound perfusion abnormalities with shunting of blood to areas of lung with impaired gas exchange [6]. Our study confirms that pulmonary vascular shunting may play a significant role in the development of hypoxaemia in COVID-19. From a pathophysiological perspective, the strong correlation of CRP with intrapulmonary shunt and outcomes such as length of CPAP and death implies that a more profound inflammatory response correlates with more severe shunting, ...

  • In other words, the partial pressure gradient of oxygen across the alveolar membrane is eliminated early on as blood moves through the pulmonary capillaries. (
  • Empirical studies have shown that heavy exercise results in blood travelling through the pulmonary capillaries nearly three times as fast as during rest. (
  • Consequently, during scenarios of intense physical exertion, the partial pressure of oxygen across the alveolar membrane just barely equilibrates by the time blood has reached the end of the pulmonary capillaries. (
  • The rate of oxygen diffusion can be so considerably slowed that the partial pressure gradient of oxygen across the alveolar membrane may not equilibrate by the time blood reaches the ends of the pulmonary capillaries. (

  • A pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis likely comes after you have experienced symptoms including shortness of breath, weight loss, exhaustion, and possibly sore muscles. (
  • It causes changes in the chest radiograph and, in more serious cases, can cause shortness of breath, loss of pulmonary function, and even death. (
  • In such a scenario, oxygen gas is rendered diffusion-limited and results in reductions in the partial pressure of arterial oxygen, thus yielding hypoxemia. (

  • The key role for HP 129Xe MRI is that it can enable non-invasive high-resolution imaging of all aspects of pulmonary structure and function. (
  • We have also demonstrated the fundamentally new capability to directly visualize the uptake of 129Xe into the pulmonary capillary blood and tissues, which can provide an even more complete picture of pulmonary function by supplying regional gas exchange information. (
  • Hence, the affected areas lose their function of gas exchange. (
  • Lung function is significantly affected in cases of pulmonary agenesis, demonstrated by reduction in forced expiratory volume and forced vital capacity. (
  • The retention of bronchial secretions often leads to recurrent pulmonary infections, adding to damage in lung function, hence causing respiratory stress. (

  • Resting pulmonary function testing was performed. (
  • Oxygen uptake (VO2), carbon-dioxide production (VCO2), respiratory exchange rate, tidal volume, and other variables related to respiratory function were monitored. (
  • Pulmonary function or gas exchange during exercise was not affected by the presence of circumscribed pleural plaques or diffuse pleural thickening. (
  • The key issue facing clinicians is whether the presenting history, symptoms/signs, radiology, and pulmonary function testing are collectively in keeping with the diagnosis of IPF (which carries the relatively poor prognosis described above) or whether the findings are due to another process. (
  • Since the pressure within arteries is relatively high, the vasa vasorum must function in the outer layers of the vessel or the pressure exerted by the blood passing through the vessel would collapse it, preventing any exchange from occurring. (
  • This chapter focuses initially on changes in pulmonary function with surgery. (
  • Five principal categories of change in pulmonary function with surgery may be considered: (1) lung volumes, (2) diaphragm function, (3) gas exchange, (4) control of breathing, and (5) lung defense mechanisms ( Table 103-1 ). (
  • Your doctor will start with standard lung function tests but will have to progress at least to chest imaging and perhaps to a lung biopsy for conclusive diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis. (
  • Our analysis suggests a novel mechanism of alveolar formation and provides the foundation for investigations of the structure, function and maintenance of the gas exchange surface in health, disease, aging and evolution. (
  • In order to identify the best way to use such surrogate markers in assessing the course of disease in PAH, we need to understand not only how the primary lesion, i.e. pulmonary vascular remodelling, is triggered and develops, but also how the right ventricle adapts and how its function deteriorates over time.

  • Innovative gas exchange and metabolics technologies for optimizing the patient's nutrition, work of breathing and ventilator settings in order to help the patient in the healing and weaning process. (
  • By the time a patient presents with symptoms, even with "early" symptoms, classified as being in World Health Organization (WHO) functional class (FC) II, PVR is already substantially above normal, suggesting advanced pulmonary vascular remodelling. (
  • High-altitude mountaineering can induce pulmonary hypoxia due to decreased atmospheric pressure. (
  • A second mechanism has also been proposed in which dust damage to the macrophage causes the release of mediator substances which induce pulmonary fibroblast cell proliferation and increased collagen synthesis. (
  • The pathogenesis of PAH is multifactorial, involving a number of biochemical pathways and cell types [ 1 ], but all forms of PAH, regardless of underlying aetiology, share a common pulmonary vasculopathy characterised by intimal proliferation, medial hypertrophy and the development of plexiform lesions. (
  • In most cases of pulmonary agenesis, surgical resection is performed to remove the malformed lobe or the entire defected lung of the patient depending on the severity of the respiratory impairment. (
  • Two laboratory methods recently deployed, esophageal pressure (P es ) measurement and functional residual capacity (FRC) estimation by gas dilution, have the potential to refine our understanding of the mechanics of the lung itself. (
  • Lung mechanics, gas exchange and central circulation during treatment of intra-abdominal hemorrhage with pneumatic anti-shock garment and intra-aortic balloon occlusion. (
  • The effects of this treatment on circulation, lung mechanics and gas exchange were studied. (
  • This can cause the levels of carbon dioxide to rise in your blood, as the lungs are having a hard time exchanging the carbon dioxide for oxygen. (
  • The basic answer is that anything that can prevent the exchange of carbon dioxide in your body for oxygen is a potential cause. (
  • Gas exchange allows the body to replenish the oxygen and eliminate the carbon dioxide. (
  • Such modification of the mineral surface might interfere with surface sites responsible for the toxicity of dusts for pulmonary macrophages, thus interrupting the early stages of the process of fibrosis. (
  • The acute and chronic findings of direct pulmonary toxicity do not include the depression of respiratory drive caused by SC [4] [5]. (
  • Arteries and veins transport blood in two distinct circuits: the systemic circuit and the pulmonary circuit. (
  • Pulmonary veins then return freshly oxygenated blood from the lungs to the heart to be pumped back out into systemic circulation. (
  • During swimming, this mechanism also increases heart rate while vagal withdrawal facilitates a systemic to pulmonary (left to right) shunt. (
  • The treatment of choice, and only potentially curative option, is surgical disobliteration of the pulmonary arteries by pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) [ 3 ]. (
  • In contrast, in the pulmonary circuit, arteries carry blood low in oxygen exclusively to the lungs for gas exchange. (
  • Larger arteries and veins contain small blood vessels within their walls known as the vasa vasorum -literally "vessels of the vessel"-to provide them with this critical exchange. (
  • Recently it was proposed that hypoxia is sensed at the alveolar/capillary level, generating an electrical signal that is transduced to pulmonary arterioles through gap junctions in the pulmonary endothelium to cause HPV. (
  • The angiogenic response of the pulmonary vascular bed as a result of exposure to chronic hypoxia has been recognized in other species, but similar studies are not known in broilers. (
  • It was evaluated the mRNA expression of genes HIF-1α , HIF-2α, VEGF, Flk-1, Flt-1, HGF, HGFR, EGF and EGFR and the pulmonary vascular density for broilers reared at 460 meters and at 2638 meters, under natural conditions of hypobaric hypoxia, and for chickens that developed HAP and those who did not. (
  • Inhaled zaprinast selectively dilated the pulmonary circulation and potentiated and prolonged the pulmonary vasodilating effects of inhaled NO. The net transpulmonary release of cGMP was increased by inhalation of NO, zaprinast, or both. (
  • Frequently seen clinical features includes dyspnea, respiratory distress, recurrent pulmonary infections, and limited exercise tolerance. (
  • Despite the parabronchial pulmonary system of birds allows greater efficiency in pulmonary gas exchange, the breeding programs of broiler chickens have resulted collaterally in a decrease of ability of lungs for gas exchange. (
  • [10] We and others recently reported the potentiation and prolongation of the pulmonary vasodilating effects of inhaled NO by intravenous zaprinast in lambs. (
  • Veno-venous extracorporeal lung assist (ECLA) can provide sufficient gas exchange even in most severe cases of acute respiratory distress syndrome. (
