Project Details

Description

This program project is devoted to the mechanisms of pulmonary ventilation and
bloodflow, and the relationsips between ventilation, bloodflow and pulmonary gas
exchange. Mechanisms of ventilation are being investigated during high
frequency mechanical ventilation, during changes in gravitational loading, and
in patients with asthma and other types of lung disease. Control of pulmonary
bloodflow is being investigated during alveolar hypoxia, lung edema, and at
different stages of lung inflation. Pulmonary gas exchange is being studied in
patients with various types of lung disease, in diving mammals, in the avian
lung, and in theoretical models in which ventilation and bloodflow are
mismatched.
