The Role of Hydrogen Ion Concentration in the Regulation of Pulmonary Arterial Pressure
Observations in a Patient with Hypoventilation and Obesity
The relative importance of arterial oxygen tension and hydrogen ion concentration in regulating pulmonary arterial pressure was evaluated in a 43-year-old woman with hypoventilation and obesity. It was shown that hydrogen ion concentration played a dominant role in the regulation of her pulmonary circulation.
