Treatment of Respiratory Disorders

Conference paper


Adequate gas exchange depends upon the proper functioning of the processes of oxygenation and CO., elimination. Restrictions on the functioning of these main respiratory components lead to disturbances of other organ systems, and vice versa. Some patients suffering from sepsis syndrome are severely endangered from respiratory disorders due to various morphological and functional changes. In about 20% of cases these pulmonary disturbances result in adult respiratory distress syndrome, which is a component of a sepsis-induced multiple organ failure. Under these circumstances mortality is extremely high (70%–90%).
