Pulmonary Physiology – Part Three

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

In the third and final part of our review, we thoroughly and quantitatively analyse the influence of alveolar dead space ventilation and shunt on the pulmonary exchange of gases and present a rationale for the differential diagnosis of two most common causes of impaired pulmonary function. At the end, we present the most important elements involved in the regulation of breathing.
