    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...

    Purpose: The multiple inert gas elimination technique (MIGET) is the reference method for evaluating pulmonary gas exchange. MIGET includes a complex experimental method and mathematical model, and has not been used routinely in clinical practice. A simpler mathematical model has been proposed,...

    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...

    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...
