Sample text

Some CPEX reports will give you numerical values for this index. 2 during exercise. e. lung that is ventilated but does not participate in gas exchange, decreases on exercise. As cardiac output rises, blood flow through under-perfused lung units (on the right in this figure) increases, and ventilation-perfusion matching becomes more even. dioxide output Extreme exercise will result in anaerobic metabolism, and the production of lactic acid will eventually swamp the buffering mechanisms. When this happens, more acid appears in the blood: this is called acidaemia.

Someone with severe airflow obstruction who is already hyperinflated will have nowhere to go (in terms of increasing their lung volume, that is): they cannot increase flow to exhale a larger Vt, and they cannot afford to shorten expiration in order to increase respiratory rate. 7). With age, loss of elasticity in the lungs means that the airways are more prone to collapse during expiration. This probably explains why older subjects don’t push their Vt quite as high as younger subjects: they can’t get as much air out before it’s time for the next breath.
