Example text

Wet lung collapses the terminal bronchioles, trapping distal alveolar gas. Persistent perfusion of these poorly ventilated regions is a shunt that results in hypoxia. 21. How long does it take for pulmonary arterial (deoxygenated) blood to equilibrate completely with trapped (poorly oxygenated) alveolar gas? It takes about three fourths of a second. After that, no more oxygen is added, and no more carbon dioxide (CO2) is eliminated from the perfusing blood. Terminal bronchiolar closure producing trapped alveolar gas is bad.

A ventricular impulse activates the entire mass, slowly producing a wide-complex beat (>2 small boxes on ECG). 3. Not all wide-complex beats are ventricular in origin. 4. To distinguish ventricular from supraventricular tachycardia, transiently block AV node with adenosine intravenous push. If ventricular complex persists, it is ventricular tachycardia; if the complex stops, it is supraventricular tachycardia. 13. Why give digoxin? Digoxin is an effective AV nodal blocker, but it makes cardiomyocytes more excitable.

The primary goal is to control ventricular rate between 60 and 100 beats per minute, and the secondary goal is to maintain sinus rhythm. 4. How important is sinus rhythm? It depends on the patient’s ventricular function. Induction of atrial fibrillation in a medical student volunteer causes no measurable hemodynamic effect. Your ventricular compliance is so good that you do not need an atrial ‘‘kick’’ to fill the ventricle completely. Conversely, the worse (the stiffer) the patient’s heart, the more you should try to maintain sinus rhythm.
