Pulmonary hypertension causes a sub- stantial increase in workload on the right heart, often leading to right heart hypertrophy (see Clinical Focus Box 20. Generalized hypoxia plays an important nonpatho- physiological role before birth. In the fetus, pulmonary vas- cular resistance is extremely high as a result of generalized Hypoxia hypoxia—less than 15% of the cardiac output goes to the lungs, and the remainder is diverted to the left side of the heart via the foramen ovale and to the aorta via the ductus arteriosus. When alveoli are oxygenated on the newborn’s first breath, pulmonary vascular smooth muscle relaxes, the vessels dilate, and vascular resistance falls dramatically. The foramen ovale and ductus arteriosus close and pulmonary B Generalized hypoxia blood flow increases enormously. FLUID EXCHANGE IN PULMONARY CAPILLARIES Starling forces, which govern the exchange of fluid across capillary walls in the systemic circulation (see Chapter 16), Hypoxia Hypoxia also operate in the pulmonary capillaries. Net fluid transfer across the pulmonary capillaries depends on the difference be- tween hydrostatic and colloid osmotic pressures inside and outside the capillaries. In the pulmonary circulation, two ad- ditional forces play a role in fluid transfer—surface tension and alveolar pressure. The force of alveolar surface tension (see Chapter 19) pulls inward, which tends to lower intersti- Effect of alveolar hypoxia on pulmonary ar- tial pressure and draw fluid into the interstitial space.

This is functionally important because the low hydrostatic pressure in the pulmonary cap- illaries favors the net absorption of fluid.
