Abstract

Many apparently healthy individuals experience pulmonary gas exchange limitations during exercise, and the term "exercise induced arterial hypoxemia" (EIAH) has been used to describe the increase in alveolar-arterial difference for oxygen (AaDO2), which combined with a minimal alveolar hyperventilatory response, results in a reduction in arterial PO2. Despite more than two decades of research, the mechanisms of pulmonary gas exchange limitations during exercise are still debated. Using data in 166 healthy normal subjects collated from several previously published studies it can be shown that approximately 20% of the variation in PaO2 between individuals can be explained on the basis of variations in alveolar ventilation, whereas variations in AaDO2 explain approximately 80%. Using multiple inert gas data the relative contributions of ventilation-perfusion ("VA/Q") inequality and diffusion limitation to the AaDO2 can be assessed. During maximal exercise, both in individuals with minimal (AaDO2 < 20 Torr, x = 13 +/- 5, means +/- SD, n = 35) and moderate to severe (AaDO2= 25-40 Torr, x = 33 +/- 6, n = 20) gas exchange limitations, VA/Q inequality is an important contributor to the AaDO2. However, in subjects with minimal gas exchange impairment, VA/Q inequality accounts for virtually all of the AaDO2 (12 +/- 6 Torr), whereas in subjects with moderate to severe gas exchange impairment it accounts for less than 50% of the AaDO2 (15 +/- 6 Torr). Using this framework, the difficulties associated with unraveling the mechanisms of pulmonary gas exchange limitations during exercise are explored, and current data discussed.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 31 May 2012.
All research outputs
#816,752
of 3,636,226 outputs
Outputs from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#116
of 971 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#24,733
of 94,809 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Advances in experimental medicine and biology
#4
of 47 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,636,226 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 63rd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 971 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 64% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 94,809 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 72% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 47 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
