1) [3]. Since the PO2 and PCO2 in each alveolus is determined by ˙ ratio, a line through all PO2–PCO2 value pairs the V˙A/Q can be drawn connecting two endpoints of mixed venous blood and inspired gas composition. Each point on this ˙ values from 0 (representing perline represents V˙A/Q fused but not ventilated alveoli, thus corresponding to shunt areas) to ∞ (representing ventilated but not perfused alveoli, thus corresponding to dead space). Theoretically, the most efficient gas exchange should be expected in a perfectly homogeneous lung, with an overall ˙ value near unity.

0. 0 while the modest levels of intrapulmonary shunt remain unchanged, a response that strongly suggests HPV release. Both responses to pure O2 breathing are accompanied with increases in PaO2, which are much more prominent in patients with COPD. The increase in intrapulmonary shunt in ALI/ARDS is likely due to RA. If cardiac output increases as part of the sympathetic response to arterial hypoxemia, one may also see a parallel increase in mixed venous PO2 owing to increased O2 delivery. This can offset the increased shunt fraction minimizing the decrease in PaO2.
