Interactions Between the Lungs and the Right and Left Ventricles During Controlled Ventilation
Heart-Lung Interaction is a term that was coined by Robotham and colleagues in the early 1980’s to describe the effects of controlled ventilation on the heart that were unpredictable from measurements of pleural pressure . Since being introduced, the term Heart-Lung Interaction has been used more broadly to describe cardiovascular responses that result from any alteration in thoracic mechanics. Precise cardiovascular responses to the majority of physiological and pathological states that alter thoracic mechanics have never been studied apart from their effects on pleural pressure and remain unknown. Areas of heart-lung interactions that have been studied are those in which physicians have control and decision making responsibilities over the mechanical changes of the lungs and thorax, i. e., controlled mechanical ventilation.
