4] Increased tidal volume increases the resting minute ventilation, and thereby the alveolar ventilation also increases.
3 Pneumoperitoneum results in decreased lung and chest wall compliance and reduced functional residual capacity which impairs alveolar ventilation and leads to ventilator induced lung injury.
s) exhalizer d system for functional evaluations of small airways and alveolar ventilation in pediatric patients up, Even non-collaborative.
7) To compensate for this high oxygen consumption, neonates also have twice the alveolar ventilation of an adult.
CPAP maintains positive pressure in the airways in spontaneously breathing patients during both phases of respiration, improves alveolar ventilation and oxygenation by increasing functional residual capacity, decreases pulmonary edema, minimizes expiratory bronchiolar collapse, decreases intrapulmonary shunting, lowers upper airway resistance, stimulates lung growth, conserves surfactant, increases lung compliance and reduces obstructive apnea14.
It provides information about CO2 production, pulmonary (lung) perfusion, alveolar ventilation, respiratory patterns, and elimination of CO2 from the anesthesia breathing circuit and ventilator.
Cautious fluid therapy to maintain blood pressure without fluid overload and pulmonary edema, transfusion with evaluation of rheologic considerations, and pain management with opiates and other agents that reduces pain but does not decrease alveolar ventilation.
Capnography provides information about CO2 production, alveolar ventilation, and elimination of CO2 from anesthesia circuit and shows respiratory patterns.
Weaning from NIPPV was performed on a daily basis by gradually reducing pressure levels until adequate VT levels could be reached and proper alveolar ventilation could be established.
Deep breathing has also been documented to increase the alveolar ventilation (8).
The pulmonary circulation will try to compensate for reduced alveolar ventilation by diverting blood from unventilated regions of the lung, a response referred to as hypoxic vasoconstriction.
