In the upright position the pulmonary artery pressure at rest or light exercise is too low to completely recruit the upper lobes of the lung. 1 A low-pressure system The pulmonary circulation is a low-pressure system relative to the systemic circulation, Fig. 9. It has to operate at a relatively low pressure level in order to sustain rapid diffusive gas exchange between inspired air and the cardiac output as it is pumped at a high rate through thin walled capillaries. The high rate of diffusion requires a thin 20 Human Respiration 50 Mean Pulmonary Vascular Pressures (mmHg) Pulmonary Artery Capillary Wedge 40 30 20 10 0 0 10 20 30 Cardiac Output (l/min) Figure 9: Mean vascular pressures are much lower in the lung than in the systemic circulation.

Now we can address the question of what would happen to arterial O2 saturation ˙ c would if DLO2 remained fixed from rest to exercise. 5%. By the time cardiac output reached 22 L/min ScO2 would have fallen to about 80%. At 10,000 feet arterial saturation would fall to between 70 and 80% at a cardiac output of 15 l/min if DLO2 failed to rise above its resting level. Why then doesn’t the system operate with the pulmonary capillary bed fully recruited at rest? As will be discussed in the next section, part of the explanation arises from the fact that the pulmonary circulation must operate at low pressures.
