Example text

V/Q mismatch is responsible for the development of hypoxemia. With sufficient pulmonary reserve, a patient can usually compensate for the hypoxemic condition by hyperventilation. Hypoxemia caused by uncomplicated V/Q mismatch is readily reversible by oxygen therapy. , 1991). Intrapulmonary Shunting Shunted pulmonary blood flow is not useful in gas exchange. Intrapulmonary shunting causes refractory hypoxemia. The estimated physiologic shunt equation requires only an arterial blood sample. In contrast with deadspace ventilation (ventilation in excess of perfusion), shunting refers to perfusion in excess of ventilation (“wasted” perfusion) (Figure 1-7).

Conditions in Table 1-7 induce poor or inadequate gas diffusion and can severely hinder the oxygenation process. Hypoxemia and hypoxia are usually the end results. Severe hypoxemia and hypoxia may lead to hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction, pulmonary hypertension, and cor pulmonale. OXYGENATION FAILURE Oxygenation failure is defined as severe hypoxemia that does not respond to moderate to high levels of supplemental oxygen. It may be caused by hypoventilation, ventilation/ perfusion mismatch, or intrapulmonary shunting.

When an abnormally low or high compliance is uncorrected and prolonged, muscle fatigue may occur and lead to the development of ventilatory and oxygenation failure (Rochester, 1993). Ventilatory failure develops when the patient’s minute ventilation cannot keep up with the CO2 production. Oxygenation failure usually follows when the cardiopulmonary system cannot supply the oxygen needed for metabolism and prolonged increase in the work of breathing. DEADSPACE VENTILATION deadspace ventilation: Ventilation in excess of perfusion; wasted ventilation.
