E. cor pulmonale). Right ventricular hypertrophy may, however, occur in severe and chronic cases of RAO. Although pulmonary artery pressure can be elevated in RAO-affected horses, cardiac output is not, indicating that PVR is increased (Nyman et al 1991a). Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction likely plays some role in the development of pulmonary hypertension in the horse as increased inspired oxygen fraction has been shown to reduce hypertension (Dixon 1978). As might be reasonably expected, RAO• • affected horses show poor V /Q matching that improves after treatment (Votion et al 1999).
The Reynolds number (in boxes) predicts the type of ﬂow that is likely to predominate in rigid tubes. g. blood vessel) Rigid tube Driving pressure (ΔP) Fig. 4. The relationship between driving pressure and the resulting ﬂow in rigid and distensible tubes. In a rigid tube, the ﬂow rate increases in direct proportion to driving pressure. In a distensible tube, ﬂow rate increases in a non-linear manner because of the increase in radius resulting from distension, according to Poiseuille’s law (see Fig.
The shape of the curve is related to the fact that as the blood vessel distends under increasing perfusion pressure, the resulting ﬂow will increase not in a linear fashion, but to the fourth power of the radius. ν. d ) /μ <2000 Laminar 2000-4000 Transitional >4000 Turbulent Flow where ρ is density, ν is the velocity of the ﬂuid, d is the vessel diameter and μ is the ﬂuid viscosity. At a Reynolds number < 2000, ﬂows of ﬂuid other than blood are considered to be laminar. Between 2000 and 4000 ﬂow is described as transitional, whilst when Re > 4000 ﬂows are considered to be turbulent.
