Sample text

What physiological effects will this have on the patient’s tidal volume and respiratory rate? After talking about dead space, Dr Blunt had gone on to describe things that caused Ted to experience even more fear. ‘The loss of functional alveoli in emphysema,’ he had said, ‘will reduce diffusion capacity and therefore impair gas exchange. 9 Gas exchange. Adapted from Sherwood (2004) Human Physiology from Cells to System, 5th edition, Thomson, Brooks/Cole. 9 shows changes in PaO2 and PaCO2 as blood moves from metabolically active tissues to the lungs and back.

The pontine pneumotaxic centre inhibits inspiratory neurons and shortens inspiration. 16. Increases in arterial PaCO2 increase ventilation by stimulating central chemoreceptors in the medulla. Chemoreceptor cells are actually sensitive to Hþ ions formed by CO2 crossing the blood–brain barrier and reacting with water: CO2 þ H2 O ! H2 CO3 ! Hþ þ HCOÀ 3 An arterial acidosis however has little immediate effect on central chemoreceptors because Hþ ions cannot cross the blood–brain barrier. In contrast PaO2 stimulate central chemoreceptors less well.

He looked a bit perturbed. He mentioned a conversation he had overheard between Dr Blunt and a medical student, where his increased dead space had been discussed. Dead space refers to the volume that is ventilated but does not participate in gas exchange. Anatomical dead space includes all the conduit airways down to bronchioles. Since Ted has air in his conduction system 21 GRANDMA’S BAD CHEST . . g. g. 8 Ventilation and perfusion. ‘D’ and ‘E’ shows how vasodilatation or vasoconstriction corrects a VA/Q mismatch The V/Q ratio ¼ alveolar ventilation rate/pulmonary blood flow If there is no ventilation, Va/Q ¼ 0 For example you get perfusion without ventilation when an alveolus is full of liquid as in severe pneumonia.
