Interactions between the pulmonary Circulation and Ventilation: An overview for intensivists

A. F. Broccard, F. Feihl

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The heart and the lungs are coupled both anatomically and physiologically in that the cardiovascular and respiratory systems are functionally linked in the respiratory chain (oxygen and carbon-dioxide exchange). Their close proximity within the thorax and the fact that the lungs serve as a conduit between the right and left heart chambers largely account for the mechanical interactions between these two systems.
