BT_PO 1.30 Outline methods used to measure ventilation-perfusion inequalities


TRUE/FALSE In a healthy conscious resting subject, there is no significant difference between PCO2 of end-expiratory gas and arterial blood

TRUE/FALSE The Bohr equation is a reliable estimate od dead space in both the exercising and resting subject

TRUE/FALSE Position of the neck and jaw alters the anatomical dead space by more than 30mls in an adult

TRUE/FALSE The neck flexed-chin depressed position causes more anatomical dead space than the neck extended-jaw protuded position

TRUE/FALSE The arterial/end-expiratory PCO2 difference can be used to assess the magnitude of anatomical dead space
