Sample text

The product of VT and breathing frequency is the minute volume. As previously discussed, only a portion of the minute volume actually reaches the alveoli. The volume of the conducting airways is called the anatomic dead space. As respiratory rate and/or VT is increased, minute ventilation increases. When VT is increased, alveolar ventilation increases even more than minute ventilation because the anatomic dead space remains constant. In contrast, with increases in respiratory rate, alveolar minute ventilation and total minute ventilation increase proportionally.

With time-cycled pressure-limited devices, adjustments that increase ΔP (pressure amplitude or difference between PIP and PEEP) will increase VT, provided the compliance remains the same. 64 Ventilation during HFOV is generally controlled by altering the power setting, which controls the stroke length of the piston and therefore pressure amplitude. The larger the amplitude, the greater the VT and thus the greater the CO2 removal. 85 This means that in the unusual clinical setting in which amplitude settings are maximized, frequency may need to be reduced if an improvement in ventilation is desired.

Fig. 2-18). 114-116 As such, hyperventilation is no longer advocated as a treatment modality in infants with PPHN. 121 The pulmonary arteries, like the airways, form a treelike structure. The pulmonary circulation is perfused by the entire cardiac output. Blood flow is determined by the pressure difference between pulmonary arteries and veins and by the vascular resistance. The pulmonary circulation is a low-pressure low-resistance system. The distribution of blood flow to the gas exchange units depends on the distribution of resistances, which are affected by contraction of the smooth muscle walls of the arteries.
