The causes for arterial hypoxia and hypoxemia, which may occur during the first hour after shock, are discussed. It is shown that in addition to the increase in dead space ventilation (VT/VD) the disseminated intravascular coagulation in the pulmonary vessels and the thereby resulting transmitting substances prevail etiologically. The results of(More)
A correlated pathological and clinical study in patients dying from shock resulted in the description of a distinct condition called “shock lung”. The underlying mechanism appears to be microthrombosis of the lung and concomitant permeability defects. As a result of the obstructions in circulation, perfusion is hampered and functional dead space increases.(More)
The congenital progressive ataxia (CPA) and spastic paresis in pigs, recently identified in Switzerland, is a disease with unknown etiology. A disease similar to CPA was described earlier by Rimaila-Pärnänen (1982). The affected animals show a neuropathic disorder, which occurs in piglets of both sexes within the first week after birth. The disease(More)
Es wird zunächst die Bedeutung der Mikrozirkulation als Bindeglied zwischen Kreislauf- und Zellstoffwechsel herausgestellt. Die Zusammenhänge zwischen sympathico-adrenergischen Reaktionen, Gewebshypoxie und Mikrozirkulation werden erläutert, die Bedeutung der Wasserstoffionenkonzentration für alle Stoffwechselprozesse besonders herausgestellt.

In paternity advices the “essential paternal gene complex” may be derived from the given mother-child situation of blood groups; its rate in the population may be calculated. Hence the probability of paternity for a man, who cannot be excluded from paternity, may be calculated by means of the binomial formula. This is based on the assumption that the number(More)
