[Clinico-anatomic characteristics of acute respiratory insufficiency occurring after trauma and surgical interventions].

Abstract

The results of clinical and anatomical studies of acute respiratory insufficiency in patients suffering from hypotensive reactions caused by blood loss, shock, fat and thromboembolism and by acute left ventricular insufficiency are discussed. The role of impaired pulmonary circulation due to general circulatory disturbances in the development of acute respiratory insufficiency and the role of this syndrome in the onset of bilateral polysegment pneumonia after trauma and surgery are demonstrated. Acute diffuse alveolitis, interstitial intraalveolar edema, with the formation of hyalin membranes, atelectasis and emphysema are the main morphological signs of acute respiratory insufficiency. Massive infusion-transfusion therapy may aggravate acute respiratory insufficiency.
