Cardiopulmonary gas transport and aging.

Abstract

Pulmonary mechanics, ventilatory drive, and blood-oxygen transport are modified with age, but quantification of these changes and evaluation of their physiologic implications have been seriously limited. During acute and chronic physiologic stress, the respiratory and hemoglobin oxygen transport systems respond to facilitate tissue oxygenation. While these… (More)
