 Synonyms & Historicals
Respiration, Artificial .
Mechanical Ventilation .
Artificial Respiration .
Artificial Respirations .
Mechanical Ventilations .
Respirations, Artificial .
Ventilations, Mechanical .
Ventilation, Mechanical .
Any method of artificial breathing that employs mechanical or non-mechanical means to force the air into and out of the lungs. Artificial respiration or ventilation is used in individuals who have stopped breathing or have RESPIRATORY INSUFFICIENCY to increase their intake of oxygen (O2) and excretion of carbon dioxide (CO2). .
Respiration .
Breathing .
The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.). This does not include tissue respiration (= OXYGEN CONSUMPTION) or cell respiration (= CELL RESPIRATION). .
Hyperventilation .
Hyperventilations .
A pulmonary ventilation rate faster than is metabolically necessary for the exchange of gases. It is the result of an increased frequency of breathing, an increased tidal volume, or a combination of both. It causes an excess intake of oxygen and the blowing off of carbon dioxide. .
Airway Obstruction .
Airway Obstructions .
Obstruction, Airway .
Obstructions, Airway .
Choking .
Any hindrance to the passage of air into and out of the lungs. .

Lung Function Tests .
Pulmonary Function Tests .
Measurement of the various processes involved in the act of respiration: inspiration, expiration, oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange, lung volume and compliance, etc. .
Exhalation .
Exhaling .
Expiration, Respiratory .
Exhalations .
Expirations, Respiratory .
Respiratory Expiration .
Respiratory Expirations .
The act of BREATHING out. .
Hyperemia .

Engorgement, Venous .
Hyperemia, Active .
Hyperemia, Arterial .

Hyperemia, Reactive .
Hyperemias .
Hyperemias, Reactive .
Reactive Hyperemias .
The presence of an increased amount of blood in a body part or an organ leading to congestion or engorgement of blood vessels. Hyperemia can be due to increase of blood flow into the area (active or arterial), or due to obstruction of outflow of blood from the area (passive or venous). .
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation .

Code Blue .
CPR 18363 .
Mouth-to-Mouth Resuscitation .
Basic Life Support .
Life Support, Basic .
The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE. .
Cough .
Coughs .
A sudden, audible expulsion of air from the lungs through a partially closed glottis, preceded by inhalation. It is a protective response that serves to clear the trachea, bronchi, and/or lungs of irritants and secretions, or to prevent aspiration of foreign materials into the lungs. .
Respiratory Dead Space .
Dead Space, Respiratory .
Dead Spaces, Respiratory .
Respiratory Dead Spaces .
Space, Respiratory Dead .
Spaces, Respiratory Dead .
That part of the RESPIRATORY TRACT or the air within the respiratory tract that does not exchange OXYGEN and CARBON DIOXIDE with pulmonary capillary blood. .
