    Background Carbon dioxide (CO2)-pneumoperitoneum (PP) of 12 mm Hg increases arterial oxygenation, but it also promotes collapse of dependent lung regions. This seeming paradox prompted the present animal study on the effects of PP on ventilation–perfusion distribution (V/Q) and gas...

    During exercise in humans, the alveolar-arterial O2 tension difference ((A-a)DO2) increases with exercise intensity and is an important factor determining the absolute level of oxygen binding to hemoglobin and therefore the level of systemic oxygen transport. During exercise in hypoxia, the...

    Background: Sedation with α2-agonists in the horse is reported to be accompanied by impairment of arterial oxygenation. The present study was undertaken to investigate pulmonary gas exchange using the Multiple Inert Gas Elimination Technique (MIGET), during sedation with the α2- agonist...

    Objective: To investigate a possible additive effect of combined nitric oxide (NO) and almitrine bismesylate (ALM) on pulmonary ventilation-perfusion (V.A/Q) ratio.¶Design: Prospective, controlled animal study.¶Setting: Animal research facility of a university hospital.¶Interventions:...

    Background: The adult respiratory distress syndrome is characterized by pulmonary hypertension and right-to-left shunting of venous blood. We investigated whether inhaling nitric oxide gas would cause selective vasodilation of ventilated lung regions, thereby reducing pulmonary hypertension and...

    During exercise, healthy individuals are able to maintain arterial oxygenation, whereas highly-trained endurance athletes may exhibit an exercise-induced arterial hypoxaemia (EIAH) that seems to reflect a gas exchange abnormality. The effects of EIAH are currently debated, and different...

    During the inhalation of anaesthesia use of low fresh gas flow (0.35-1 L/min) has some important advantages. There are three areas of benefit: pulmonary - anaesthesia with low fresh gas flow improves the dynamics of inhaled anaesthesia gas, increases mucociliary clearance, maintains body...
