Sample text

Thereafter there is a linear decay in flow as the lung empties (the so-called ‘effort independent’ part of the loop). The inspiratory limb is almost ‘semi-circular’. Fixed extrathoracic obstructions produce a FV loop whose inspiratory and expiratory limbs are almost symmetrical. The loop is more ‘box-like’ than ‘loop-like’ on account of the maximum inspiratory and expiratory flows being held constant for most of the breath duration. What physical properties of the lung account for these differences in the FV loop?

By the dimensions of the device and the driving pressure. 12. The above considerations apply to the use of a jet insufflator when used via a rigid bronchoscope or when applied directly into a patent airway or through the open vocal cords. These physical laws do not apply when a small bore needle is placed into a sealed system as might occur if the needle is placed via the cricothyroid membrane and the cords are closed, or upper airway obstructed. Under these circumstances jet ventilation, as defined above, does not occur.

Nishino investigated the effects of halothane, enflurane and isoflurane on receptors within the isolated upper airway of dogs and found that only halothane produced an inhibitory effect on receptor discharge. Other workers have reported the irritant effects of isoflurane during induction of anaesthesia. Desflurane is also known to have significant irritant effects on the airway during anaesthesia. One comparison of the volatile agents found airway irritation most frequently with isoflurane, followed by enflurane, halothane and least frequently by sevoflurane.
