    Given these unique considerations, physiologists have divided the lung into three basic zones which highlight major differences in how blood flow is actuated within the upright lung. Zone 1; Zone 1 is defined as those areas of the lung where alveolar pressure exceeds that of . Regional Differences in the Lung.- Regulation of the Pulmonary Circulation.- New Concepts in the Regulation of the Pulmonary Vasculature: Biochemical Activities of Endothelial Cells that influence Pulmonary Vascular Tone and Blood Flow.- Pathophysiology of Pulmonary Edema: Implications for Clinical Management.- Control of Breathing

    The zones of the lung divide the lung into four vertical regions, based upon the relationship between the pressure in the alveoli (PA), in the arteries (Pa), in the veins (Pv) and the pulmonary interstitial pressure (Pi). Zone 1: PA > Pa > Pv; Zone 2: Pa > PA > Pv; Zone 3: Pa > Pv > PA; Zone 4: Pa > Pi > Pv > PA; This concept is generally attributed to an article by West et al. in , but. Respiratory system - Respiratory system - Birds: Birds must be capable of high rates of gas exchange because their oxygen consumption at rest is higher than that of all other vertebrates, including mammals, and it increases many times during flight. The gas volume of the bird lung is small compared with that of mammals, but the lung is connected to voluminous air sacs by a series of tubes.

Indeed, until some 15 or so years ago, very little was known about these differences. However, there is now very good evidence of striking regional differences in bloodflow, ventilation, gas exchange, pleural pressure, alveolar size, and Cited by: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Regional differences in the lung.

The second edition of The Lung: Development, Aging and the Environment provides an understanding of the multi-faceted nature of lung development, aging, and how the environment influences these processes.

As an essential resource to respiratory, pulmonary, and thoracic scientists and physicians it provides an interface between the “normal” and “disease” cluster of chapters, allowing. This results in a small, but measurable A-a Gradient in the normal upright lung although this is of little significance in a healthy adult.

However, one reason why the capacity of oxygenation by the lung improves with exercise may be that regional differences. However, this complex architecture is affected by respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, resulting in regional differences in the mechanical properties of the lung.

These factors consequently lead to ventilation heterogeneity. Differential images (D) and the regional lung opening maps (O) during low-flow inflation. Differential images show the impedance differences of lung region pixels between the EIT scans acquired at time points highlighted on the total relative impedance curve (left top) with red open circles and the EIT scan at the beginning of the inflation.

Global lung perfusion (Q)is equal to the cardiac output, and global lung ventilation (V) is equivalent to the minute volume. Under ideal circumstances, these flow rates would be equal, but in reality there is usually some inequality in the distribution of blood flow between different lung regions.

The main reason for this inequality is the gravity-related vertical distribution of blood flow. Regional Differences in the Lung. ‹ PREV ARTICLE; This Issue John West and the other contributors to this book have been in the forefront of this research.

In this study, we asked whether these regional differences in the lung are associated with DNA methylation changes in lung macrophages that could potentially lead to altered cell responsiveness upon subsequent environmental challenge.

All analyses were performed using primary lung macrophages collected via bronchoalveolar lavage from healthy. Regional Differences in the Lung* John B.
