The technique for producing hypoxemia or hypercarbia may alter the bronchial vascular response as was shown by a study in open-chest ventilated anesthetized dogs in whom acute hypoxemia caused a decrease in bronchial blood flow and an increase in vascular resistance; hypercarbia produced the opposite effect (78). Others have shown that both hypoxia and hypercarbia increase bronchial blood flow through bronchopulmonary anastomoses via a mechanism involving cyclooxygenase products of arachidonic acid (79,80).
