Henderson-Hasselbach equation is fully de- rived, which is something of an exception in this book; most of the physiologic equa- tions elsewhere are simply.

Within the pulmonary capillaries, one haemoglobin molecule binds up to four oxygen molecules in a cooperative manner. Global oxygen delivery, or oxygen dispatch, describes the total amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues each minute, and is a product of the cardiac output and arterial oxygen content.

Oxygen diffuses from both the alveoli into the pulmonary capillaries and the systemic capillaries into the tissues, according to Fick's laws of diffusion and the random walk of the diffusing particles. Oxygen is vital for life-sustaining aerobic respiration in humans and is arguably the most commonly administered drug in anaesthesia and critical care medicine.

Within the mitochondrial inner membrane, oxygen acts as the terminal electron acceptor at the end of the electron transport chain whereby oxidative phosphorylation results in the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate ATP , the coenzyme that supplies energy to all active metabolic processes. This article will discuss the key physiological concepts underpinning the movement of oxygen within the human body and also highlight some clinical applications that serve as examples of these concepts.

Convective vs diffusive oxygen transport 1—4 With respect to human physiology, oxygen transport can be divided into that occurring through convection and that occurring by diffusion. In this context, convection describes the movement of oxygen within the circulation, occurring through bulk transport. This is an active process requiring energy, in this case derived from the pumping of the heart. On the other hand, diffusion describes the passive movement of oxygen down a concentration gradient, for example, from the microcirculation into the tissues and ultimately the mitochondria.

Section 1: convective oxygen transport Oxygen uptake into the blood Deoxygenated venous blood becomes oxygenated in the pulmonary capillaries after diffusion down a concentration gradient across the alveolar capillary membrane see Section 2: diffusive oxygen transport.

The physiology of control of ventilation and the determinants of alveolar oxygen partial pressure, ventilation—perfusion matching, and diffusion within the alveolar—capillary unit are dealt with elsewhere.

Haemoglobin, an allosteric protein, consists of four protein globin chains, to each of which is attached a haem moiety, an iron-porphyrin compound.

Two pairs of globin chains exist within each haemoglobin molecule. Mutations in the amino acid sequences in the globin chains give increase to both pathological [e.

Once oxygen has diffused across the alveolar membrane, it binds reversibly to haemoglobin within the pulmonary capillaries in a cooperative manner forming oxyhaemoglobin. Your message has been successfully sent to your colleague. Save my selection.

Lung Function In Health And Disease: Basic Concepts of Respiratory Physiology and Pathophysiology

Richard M. Schwartzstein, MD; Michael J. Parker, MD.

Bibliographic Data: Reviewer's Expert Opinion: This clinically oriented book covering the essentials of respiratory physiology is the first in a series on physiology.

The authors use a systems-based approach to present physiology. An emphasis on the functions associated with breathing rather than just the lungs themselves is apparent.

It is written in an interactive style that both engages and challenges readers. The authors have exceeded their objectives. The book is written primarily for medical, nursing, and allied health students with little exposure to respiratory physiology, but residents will also find this a valuable resource in clinical practice.

The authors are experts in their respective fields. Each chapter begins with an outline followed by learning objectives. The text is brilliantly written in conversational style to hold the attention of the reader.

Key terms are boldfaced upon their first appearance in a chapter and are found in the glossary. This is an outstanding book. It is so well written and the layout is so well done that it takes difficult to understand concepts and breaks them down into easy to understand language for the reader. This is a must-have book for health professionals and should be a required text in all respiratory therapy programs.

In addition, to ensure efficient transfer of gas between the blood and the alveolus, the distance for diffusion must be as short as possible. Within the medulla, the respiratory neurons appear to be collected into two regions: This volume is referred to as functional residual capacity FRC and represents the volume of the lungs at the end of a normal, relaxed exhalation. Thus, if one section of lung is not receiving adequate ventilation and local hypoxia develops in that area, the pulmonary artery serving that region will constrict to redirect blood flow to another area that is receiving adequate ventilation Fig.
