    The ability of alveolar gas composition to influence pulmonary vascular tone has been appreciated for over 50 years. In particular, it has been proposed that both O2 and CO2 could play a role in the matching of perfusion to ventilation within the lung, improving the overall efficiency of gas...

    The article presents information on alveolar ventilation and pulmonary blood flow. The alveolus and the surrounding capillaries represent the functional lung gas exchange unit. Diffusive gas transport across the alveolar capillary membrane is very rapid. Even under pathologic conditions gas...

    Reactions of the body to different ways of regulation of respiration, i.e., through the elastic resistance to respiratory movements and external dead space volume, as well as voluntary hyper- and hypoventilation, were studied. An increased elastic resistance to respiratory movements was...

    Background. Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis is a rare disorder characterized by a large accumulation of lipoproteinaceous material within the alveoli. This causes respiratory failure due to a restriction of gas exchange and changes in the ventilation/perfusion ratio. Treatment methods include...
