Abstract

The last decade has witnessed a striking increase in our knowledge regarding the dynamics of fetal and neonatal circulation. Information has been gathered which has shed light on the various factors that control systemic and pulmonary vascular tones during intrauterine life and the transitional changes that occur at birth. Of considerable importance in fetal and neonatal adjustments is the role played by the blood respiratory gases in the control of pulmonary vasomotor tone before and after birth (1, 2, 3, 4).
