By Gordon Cumming (auth.), O. Prakash, A. A. Spence, J. P. Payne, B. Jonson, S. Nair (eds.)

This quantity, the second one in a chain on themes in microcomputers in severe care and pulmonary physiology,' includes the court cases of the second one foreign Symposium on pcs in serious Care and Pulmonary medication, held on the collage of Lund in 1980 lower than the.,chairmanship of Prof. B. Jonson, M.D., division of medical body structure, collage of Lund, Sweden. Clinicians and biomedical engineers from many nations parti­ cipated in a 3 day deliberation. Of distinctive curiosity was once the creation of nuclear recommendations in pulmonary drugs for the 1st time during this symposium sequence. it's the purpose of the guidance committee that such conferences may still ensue on an annual foundation within the quickly altering global of the technological know-how and know-how of computing in medical care, in prac­ tice and in pulmonary medication. Editorial amendment of the papers during this quantity has been stored to a minimal. adjustments were made to make sure a few uniformity in presentation and there was a few alteration of the English to prevent ambiguity, yet our intervention has long past no additional than that. it really is was hoping that the contents of this quantity will permit those who find themselves drawn to the subject material to be extra conscious of learn advancements happening in such a lot of diversified disciplines and such a lot of assorted centres in the United States and Europe. ultimately, i need to thank pass over Bodil Richardson for her or­ ganisational and secretarial support. thank you also are as a result of Prof. J.P.

32 G. BOY ET AL. Indeed obstructions weaken the flow and an exponential flow shape observed at the mouth is in fact very much pointed in the alveolar zone; then the phenomenon that we have described is enlarged. We have not discussed regional inhomogeneity, but the same reasoning can be applied to for all parts of the lung. In fact the stratification exists in each regional zone with different degrees due to the regional flow wave. REFERENCES 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. II. 12. 13. H. O. Fenn.

Indeed, many (and practically all) expiratory flow waves of artificially ventilated patients present an exponential shape. This result is particularly appreciable in the case of obstructive patients. :A! - ___• I I I I o I 20 : o o Vml o+-----~----~-£----~----~ -500 PC02 (torr) at the mouth 60 -250 o 250 500 EXPIRATION INSPIRATION MEAN ALVEOLAR PC02 40 -------T-------I I I I I , 20 I I I I I Vml O+------;r------+'-£----~----_, -500 -250 250 o 500 Fig. 7. 32 G.
