[Correlations between hemodynamic measures and respiratory functions in patients with chronic obstructive lung syndromes].

Abstract

Fourteen patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease underwent right catheterization with a Swan-Ganz catheter to correlate lung function with hemodynamic features at rest and on exercise. There appears to be a good correlation between some pulmonary function tests (FEV1, RV/TLC, PaO2 at rest and on exercise) and mean pulmonary artery pressure at… (More)
