To examine the right ventricular response to acute respiratory failure, serial studies of biventricular performance were analysed in 34 such patients, specifically detailing the role of associated underlying disease. During the initial study, the 34 patients with acute respiratory failure had a higher right ventricular end-diastolic volume than the control group (+21%), associated with a decrease in right ventricular ejection fraction, abnormalities which tended to return to normal values in… CONTINUE READING
