Example text

Each level of the respiratory tree is associated with potential problems with the management of airways and the provision of artificial ventilation. An understanding of the structure of the airways and lungs is essential to successful management of the airway and artificial ventilation. 1 Introduction A basic understanding of how the respiratory system is constructed and functions is essential to effective artificial ventilation. With the development of our knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the lungs over the past 200 years the subject is complex and there are many specialized texts.

Essentially however the key practical points for ventilation are that the sympathetic system acts through nor- adrenaline as a transmitter of nerve impulses to the smooth muscle fibres while the parasympathetic system acts through acetyl choline. 1: The Structure of the Bronchi and Resistance to Gas Flow Beyond the 11th generation of bronchioles the number increases more than their calibre diminishes. This means that the total cross sectional area increases up to more than 90 times that of the main bronchi.

This brief review of artificial ventilation from earliest times until the early 1980s has covered many discoveries and re – discoveries based upon the increasingly recognised need to provide respiratory support to avoid death from hypoxia. 2. The key modern turning point which influenced respiratory care was undoubtedly the 1952 polio epidemic where, for probably the first time it was realised that death was from hypoxia rather than from the effects of the underlying disease process. Since that time artificial ventilation, along with airway support has been fundamental to the practice of medical care both inside and particularly outside the hospital.
