Sample text

Thus, even if the transmural pressure of the capillaries is not changed with large lung infl flations, their vascular resistance increases (Figure 4-6). Because of the role of smooth muscle in determining the caliber of the extra-alveolar vessels, drugs that cause contraction of the muscle increase pulmonary vascular resistance. These include serotonin, histamine, and norepinephrine. These drugs are particularly effective vasoconstrictors when the lung volume is low and the expanding forces on the vessels are weak.

Increase the arterial PO2 during resting breathing. Increase maximal oxygen uptake at extreme altitude. 4. If a subject inhales several breaths of a gas mixture containing low concentrations of carbon monoxide and nitrous oxide, A. The partial pressures of carbon monoxide in alveolar gas and end-capillary blood will be virtually the same. B. The partial pressures of nitrous oxide in alveolar gas and end-capillary blood will be very different. C. Carbon monoxide is transferred into the blood along the whole length of the capillary.

How rapidly will the partial pressure in the blood rise? 75 second. Look first at carbon monoxide. 75 Time in capillary (sec) Figure 3-2. Uptake of carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and O2 along the pulmonary capillary. Note that the blood partial pressure of nitrous oxide virtually reaches that of alveolar gas very early in the capillary, so the transfer of this gas is perfusion limited. By contrast, the partial pressure of carbon monoxide in the blood is almost unchanged, so its transfer is diffusion limited.
