Zeitschriftenartikel

Control of breathing journal article

Herunterladen

The maintenance of blood gas homeostasis is dependent on the balance between respiratory drive and peripheral, mechanical and chemoreceptor responses. No single measurement encapsulates all aspects of this complex control system. Most investigators and clinical tests rely on relatively short-term changes in inspired gas concentrations and/or additional predominantly inspiratory mechanical loading to determine how the control system responds.

Forced oscillation technique and impulse oscillometry journal article

Herunterladen

The aim of this chapter has been to describe the unique and clinically relevant information that forced oscillation technique (FOT) provides. This may be derived without mathematical mastery of technological principles of the equipment and/or of numerical models. It is emphasised that recognition of the change in respiratory mechanical parameters as a function of oscillation frequency is necessary to appreciate the outstanding value of FOT in its ability to assess peripheral airway function.

Lung Function Testing introduction jounal article

Herunterladen

Lung function research is a relatively young science. Physicists have historically made an important contribution to the scientific development of lung function analysis due to the importance of topics such as elasticity, resistance, muscular strength and the work of breathing.

Zeitschriftenartikel

Lung Function Testing preface journal article

Herunterladen

Although diagnosis always begins with a careful history and physical examination and a physician is obligated to consider more than the diseased organ, testing of lung function has become standard practice to confirm the diagnosis, evaluate the severity of respiratory impairment, assess the therapy response and follow-up patients with various cardio-respiratory disorders. Ventilation, diffusion, blood flow and control of breathing are the major components of respiration and one or more of these functional components can be affected by any disorder.

Pulmonary gas exchange journal article

Herunterladen

In this "overview", pulmonary gas exchange is considered in three sections. The first section (Normal values, Causes of hypoxaemia I, Respiratory failure) contains "basic" knowledge about pulmonary gas exchange, which is relevant to all who work in clinical medicine. The next section (Oxygen carriage in blood, Heterogeneity of ventilation and perfusion, Causes of hypoxaemia II) focuses on "intermediate" knowledge, with which all respiratory specialists should be familiar. The last section (Oxygen affinity in special situations, Diffusion, Inert gas transport) contains "advanced" knowledge, appropriate for staff in intensive care units, anaethesiology or rehabilitation, or those undertaking research.
