Pulmonary Vascular Disease

Pulmonary Vascular The pulmonary vascular bed is normally a low-pressure, low-resistance system. When it is involved in disease, either through obliteration of cross-sectional area or less commonly through an increase in tone, the resulting pulmonary hypertension and redistribution of pulmonary blood flow lead to profound changes in cardiac function and pulmonary gas exchange. Physiological Effects … Continue reading “Pulmonary Vascular Disease”
