Increasing respiratory dead space improves sleep disordered breathing and hypoxemia in patients with chronic mountain sickness
(The FASEB Journal, 2011-04-25)
Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is a major public health problem characterized by chronic hypoxemia and erythrocytosis. The underlying mechanism is unknown. Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is frequent at high altitude. ...
The effect of changing the mode of ventilation on the arterial-to-end-tidal CO2 difference and physiological dead space in laterally and dorsally recumbent horses during halothane anesthesia
Objective - To evaluate the effect of changing the mode of ventilation from spontaneous to controlled on the arterial-to-end-tidal CO2 difference [P(a-ET)CO2] and physiological dead space (VD(phys)/VT) in laterally and ...
Microcirculatory dysfunction and dead-space ventilation in early ARDS: a hypothesis-generating observational study.
Abstract Background Ventilation/perfusion inequalities impair gas exchange in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Although increased dead-space ventilation (VD/VT) has been described in ARDS, its mechanism is not ...

Time course of haemodynamic, respiratory and inflammatory disturbances induced by experimental acute pulmonary polystyrene microembolism
(LIPPINCOTT WILLIAMS & WILKINS, 2010)
Background and objective The time course of cardiopulmonary alterations after pulmonary embolism has not been clearly demonstrated and nor has the role of systemic inflammation on the pathogenesis of the disease. This study ...
Cardio-respiratory studies in chronic mountain sckeness (Monge's syndrome)
(INTERPRINT PUBLICATIONS, 1975)
SUMMARY Comparisons with 14 normal, younger, male native residents of La Paz showed that 20 patients with Monge's syndrome have significantly higher mean body surface areas, hemoglobin, resting tidal volumes [VT (BTPS)], ...
