At A Glance
Respiratory physiology involves a number of areas, all of which are complex. These areas include the structure and function of the lung, the mechanics of breathing, gas exchange within the lung, oxygen uptake/transport and delivery, control of carbon dioxide and ventilation. Both pathologies of the lung itself as well as other disorders (cardiac disease, neurological disease, haematological disease, musculoskeletal disorders etc) have varying effects on the different aspects of pulmonary physiology. In addition, advanced respiratory treatments such as mechanical ventilation may also have effects on all of these. Respiratory terminology encompasses both anatomical and physiological descriptors, as well as terms used in investigations and respiratory management. For the non-pulmonologist or intensivist, much of this terminology may be confusing. Many of the terms sound similar and may seem to be used interchangeably.
