Perfusate reservoirs may be gassed using glassware with a sintered glass filter (Tindal, 1957), with a bubble oxygenator, which bubbles (pure) oxygen through the blood reservoir (Smith et al., 1985), or by using a rotating disc oxygenator (Drapanas et al., 1966; Cameron et al., 1972), whereby several parallel discs rotate within the reservoir containing unoxygenated blood and the gas exchange occurs at the disc-blood interface.
Disorders in pulmonary circulation and the relations of perfusion to ventilation affect the development of significant leakage unoxygenated blood in the lungs, up to 10-20%.
The pulmonary artery and aorta were switched, thus providing the body with unoxygenated blood.
Ted, one of twins - brother Bobi was unaffected - suffered from the very rare Taussig-Bing Anomaly in which holes in the heart mean that oxygenated and unoxygenated blood mingle.
A hole in the heart means there is a communication between the two as a result of which unoxygenated blood mingles with oxygenated blood which is unhealthy for the body.
These people often have multiple surgeries throughout their lives to help repair or replace the pulmonary valve--the valve that opens to send unoxygenated blood from the heart to the lungs.
More recently, this Blalock-Taussig shunt is placed only if the neonate's oxygen saturations are less than 75% to 80%, if the child experiences hypercyanotic spells due to severe right-to-left shunting of unoxygenated blood, or if the child is too young or weak to survive complete repair (Jones et al., 2006).
Since the pulmonary arteries carry unoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs for oxygenation, constriction of these arteries forces the right ventricle to work harder to push the blood toward the lungs.
