Koutsoukou, J. Milic-Emili pressure gradient that will permit flow and movement of gas. This can be accomplished by the respiratory muscles or by artificial ventilation during anaesthesia and/or acute respiratory failure. Mechanical ventilation can readily sustain adequate alveolar ventilation, improve arterial blood gases, and unload the patient’s respiratory muscles. However, the mode and settings of a ventilator can significantly influence the course of a disease and the ultimate clinical outcome and may cause severe, life-threatening complications.

These are achieved by the unique design of the lung, which ensures that air and blood are kept in intimate contact—though separate—to allow gas exchange, while maintaining its integrity in the face of the magnitude of insults that inevitably accompany a lifetime of exposure to ambient air and mechanical stress during cyclic breathing. Despite the anatomical complexity of the lung, functionally it can be divided into the bronchial tree and the respiratory zone. The bronchial tree consists of the trachea, which bifurcates into the main bronchi, which in turn branch into lobar, segmental, and subsegmental bronchi and end in bronchioles, which lack cartilage and are about 1 mm in diameter.
