Research overview:
Oxygen therapy improves prognosis and quolity of life in patients with various chronic pulmonary diseases. It is known that pulmonary hypertension induced in these diseases is one of prognostic factors. However, it is constroversial that there is relationship between acute pulmonary vascular response to oxygen inhalation and prognosis. We investigate acute effects to oxygen inhalation on the pulmonary homodynamics and prognosis.
