Changes in the gas exchange during effort in patients after operations on the lung

  • R. S. Vinitskaya
Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


The author studied the gas exchange, pulse rate and frequency of respiration at rest and following moderate physical exertion in 44 patients suffering from diseases of the lungs.

Both the increased oxygen requirement following physical exertion and compensatory reactions occurring with disturbed respiratory apparatus are effected in diverse groups of individuals through different pathways of nervous control of respiration and circulation. Four types of respiratory and circulatory reactions in response to exertion were revealed. In all patients these reactions were intensified after the operation; in 50% of them modifications of respiration and cardiac activity were of the same type as preoperatively.
