After Po2 exceeds 90 to 100 mm Hg, the curve flattens. Once the hemoglobin is saturated, further increases in Po2 do not increase the content of bound oxygen. The total amount of O2 carried by hemoglobin depends on the hemoglobin concentration of the blood and the bloods’ oxygen saturation. Several factors affect hemoglobin’s affinity for oxygen. These factors include the (1) percentages of fetal and adult hemoglobin present in the patient’s blood, (2) amount of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate, (3) pH, and (4) temperature.

Pressures are measured in the interpleural space (PIP), in the alveoli (Palv), and at the opening of the mouth, or atmosphere (Patm). PIP < Palv < Patm.

Abbreviations as in Figure 2-9. exchange does not take place in these units, the volume that they ­constitute is called alveolar dead space. Together, anatomic dead space and alveolar dead space make up total or physiologic dead space (VDS).

Resistance is high at low lung volumes because the extra-alveolar vessels are narrowed (they are not being pulled open). Resistance is high at high inflation volumes because the alveolar vessels are narrowed by compression (they may even collapse). The lowest pulmonary vascular resistance, as well as the best lung compliance, is found when the lung is neither underinflated nor overinflated. The rapid rise in oxygen tension in the alveoli (PAo2) and in the arterial blood (PaO2) perfusing the pulmonary vessels plays a major role in the circulatory adaptation that occurs during transition to extrauterine life.
