Patients often adopt a seated or standing posture to aid breathing. High concentrations of inspired oxygen YES Critically ill? NO YES Provide appropriate oxygen to achieve SpO2 of 88–92% Fig. 6 Oxygen requirements. Risk of CO2 retainer? COPD, marked obesity, cystic fibrosis, severe chest wall disease, n/muscular disease NO Provide appropriate oxygen to achieve SpO2 of 94–98% UKS c05 UKS BLBK246-ALSG 52 May 28, 2010 16:18 Char Count= PART II STRUCTURED APPROACH Bronchospasm is common to both asthma and COPD.

Although alveolar ventilation, diffusion and pulmonary perfusion will all affect the alveolar PO2 (PaO2 ) and hence the arterial PO2 (PaO2 ), the most important factor in determining the PaO2 is the ratio of ventilation to perfusion. Ventilation/perfusion ratio To understand this concept, it is helpful to consider the normal situation and divide each lung into three functional areas: apical (a), middle (b) and basal (c) (Fig. 3). The apical segment is well ventilated, but relatively poorly perfused.

Key point Breathlessness can result from a problem in airway (A), breathing (B), circulation (C) and disability (D) Immediately life-threatening causes of breathlessness Airway r Obstruction (see full list in box 1 in Chapter 4) Breathing r Acute severe asthma r Acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) r Pulmonary oedema r Tension pneumothorax r Critical oxygen desaturation Circulation r Shock Disruption of oxygen delivery is a fundamental problem in these conditions. Therefore it is important to understand the mechanisms that maintain oxygen delivery in health.
