OBJECTIVE@#To explore the role of endoplasmic reticulum ryanodine receptor 1 (RyR1) expression and phosphorylation in sepsis- induced diaphragm dysfunction.@*METHODS@#Thirty SPF male SD rats were randomized equally into 5 groups, including a sham-operated group, 3 sepsis model groups observed at 6, 12, or 24 h following cecal ligation and perforation (CLP; CLP-6h, CLP-12h, and CLP-24h groups, respectively), and a CLP-24h group with a single intraperitoneal injection of KN- 93 immediately after the operation (CLP-24h+KN-93 group). At the indicated time points, diaphragm samples were collected for measurement of compound muscle action potential (CMAP), fatigue index of the isolated diaphragm and fitted frequencycontraction curves. The protein expression levels of CaMK Ⅱ, RyR1 and P-RyR1 in the diaphragm were detected using Western blotting.@*RESULTS@#In the rat models of sepsis, the amplitude of diaphragm CMAP decreased and its duration increased with time following CLP, and the changes were the most obvious at 24 h and significantly attenuated by KN-93 treatment (P < 0.05). The diaphragm fatigue index increased progressively following CLP (P < 0.05) irrespective of KN- 93 treatment (P>0.05). The frequency-contraction curve of the diaphragm muscle decreased progressively following CLP, and was significantly lower in CLP-24 h group than in CLP-24 h+KN-93 group (P < 0.05). Compared with that in the sham-operated group, RyR1 expression level in the diaphragm was significantly lowered at 24 h (P < 0.05) but not at 6 or 12 following CLP, irrespective of KN-93 treatment; The expression level of P-RyR1 increased gradually with time after CLP, and was significantly lowered by KN-93 treatment at 24 h following CLP (P < 0.05). The expression level of CaMKⅡ increased significantly at 24 h following CLP, and was obviously lowered by KN-93 treatment (P < 0.05).@*CONCLUSION@#Sepsis causes diaphragmatic dysfunction by enhancing CaMK Ⅱ expression and RyR1 receptor phosphorylation in the endoplasmic reticulum of the diaphragm.

Objective: We aimed to explore the feasibility of a single-port thoracoscopy- assisted five-step laparoscopic procedure via transabdominal diaphragmatic(TD) approach(abbreviated as five-step maneuver) for No.111 lymphadenectomy in patients with Siewert type II esophageal gastric junction adenocarcinoma (AEG). Methods: This was a descriptive case series study. The inclusion criteria were as follows: (1) age 18-80 years; (2) diagnosis of Siewert type II AEG; (3) clinical tumor stage cT2-4aNanyM0; (4) meeting indications of the transthoracic single-port assisted laparoscopic five-step procedure incorporating lower mediastinal lymph node dissection via a TD approach; (5) Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status (ECOG PS) 0-1; and (6) American Society of Anesthesiologists classification I, II, or III. The exclusion criteria included previous esophageal or gastric surgery, other cancers within the previous 5 years, pregnancy or lactation, and serious medical conditions. We retrospectively collected and analyzed the clinical data of 17 patients (age [mean ± SD], [63.6±11.9] years; and 12 men) who met the inclusion criteria in the Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine from January 2022 to September 2022. No.111 lymphadenectomy was performed using five-step maneuver as follows: superior to the diaphragm, starting caudad to the pericardium, along the direction of the cardio-phrenic angle and ending at the upper part of the cardio-phrenic angle, right to the right pleura and left to the fibrous pericardium , completely exposing the cardio-phrenic angle. The primary outcome includes the numbers of harvested and of positive No.111 lymph nodes. Results: Seventeen patients (3 proximal gastrectomy and 14 total gastrectomy) had undergone the five-step maneuver including lower mediastinal lymphadenectomy without conversion to laparotomy or thoracotomy and all had achieved R0 resection with no perioperative deaths. The total operative time was (268.2±32.9) minutes, and the lower mediastinal lymph node dissection time was (34.0±6.0) minutes. The median estimated blood loss was 50 (20-350) ml. A median of 7 (2-17) mediastinal lymph nodes and 2(0-6) No. 111 lymph nodes were harvested. No. 111 lymph node metastasis was identified in 1 patient. The time to first flatus occurred 3 (2-4) days postoperatively and thoracic drainage was used for 7 (4-15) days. The median postoperative hospital stay was 9 (6-16) days. One patient had a chylous fistula that resolved with conservative treatment. No serious complications occurred in any patient. Conclusion: The single-port thoracoscopy-assisted five-step laparoscopic procedure via a TD approach can facilitate No. 111 lymphadenectomy with few complications.

Mechanical ventilation (MV) is an effective treatment for respiratory failure. In recent years, it has been found that MV can not only cause ventilation-associated lung injury (VALI), but also cause ventilation-induced diaphragmatic dysfunction (VIDD). Although the injury site and etiology are not the same, they are interrelated and mutually causal, and eventually lead to weaning failure. Studies have indicated that diaphragmatic function protection strategy should be implemented in patients on MV. That is, the entire process from assessing the ability of spontaneous breathing before MV, to the initiation of spontaneous breathing and to weaning during MV. For patients on MV, continuous monitoring of respiratory muscle strength should be conducted. Early prevention, early intervention and timely detection of VIDD may reduce the occurrence of difficult weaning, resulting in improved prognosis. This study mainly discussed the risk factors and pathogenesis of VIDD.

Resumen Objetivo: Reportar el caso de una masa gigante en hemitórax izquierdo de 19 cm de diámetro en un paciente de 59 años que debutó con disnea, tos y dolor torácico, confirmándose por estudio imagenológico. Materiales y Método: Registro clínico de un paciente al cual se le diagnostica tumor fibroso solitario de pleura, siendo intervenido quirúrgicamente para exéresis de la lesión. Resultados: Se realiza toracotomía posterolateral izquierda para exéresis de tumor gigante, requiriendo además, resección de diafragma y pericardiectomía parcial con evolución favorable. Discusión: El tumor fibroso solitario es una neoplasia rara derivada del mesénquima que afecta más comúnmente a la pleura, típicamente bien circunscrita, pediculada, con vasos dentro del pedículo tumoral, pudiendo llegar a ser de gran tamaño, siendo considerados gigantes cuando tienen más de 15 cm de diámetro. Conclusión: El diagnóstico correcto es de vital importancia, ya que con la resección quirúrgica es potencialmente curable. El tratamiento quirúrgico puede efectuarse por toracotomía o videotoracoscopia, dependiendo del tamaño del tumor. A pesar del comportamiento benigno, requiere seguimiento a largo plazo debido a la tendencia a la recidiva.

Aim: To report the case of a 19 cm diameter giant mass in the left hemithorax in a 59-year-old patient who presented with dyspnea, cough and chest pain, confirmed by imaging study. Materials and Method: Clinical record of a patient who was diagnosed with a solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura, undergoing surgery to excise the lesion. Results: A left posterolateral thoracotomy was performed to excise the giant tumor, also requiring resection of the diaphragm and partial pericardiectomy with favorable evolution. Discussion: The solitary fibrous tumor is a rare neoplasm derived from the mesenchyme that most commonly affects the pleura, typically well circumscribed, pedunculated, with vessels within the tumor pedicle, and can become large, being considered giant when they are larger than 15 cm diameter. Conclusión: The correct diagnosis is of vital importance, since surgical resection it a potentially curable treatment. Surgical treatment can be performed by thoracotomy or videothoracoscopy, depending on the size of the tumor. Despite the benign behavior, it requires long-term follow-up due to the tendency to recur.

SUMMARY: The main purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between the aerobic and anaerobic performance of diaphragm thickness in athletes. That study was conducted with 15 team athletes (TA) (age 21.80 ± 2.40 years), 15 individual athletes (IA) (age 18.93 ± 2.31 years) and the control group (CON) 10 people living sedentary lifestyles (age 23.60 ± 2.91 years). In this study, diaphragm muscle thickness (B-mode ultrasonography), respiratory function (spirometry and maximum inspiratory (MIP) and expiratory pressures (MEP), aerobic capacity yo-yo intermittent endurance Test 1 (YYIET-1), and anaerobic power by Monark 834 E were assessed. The diaphragm thickness was determined from the intercostalspace between the 8th and 9th ribs at the expiration time by ultrasound and from the intercostal space between the 10th and 11th ribs at inspiration and then, the thickness of the diaphragm was measured from the diaphragm is seen best. There was a positive correlation between DiTins (r= 0.477) and DiTins-ex (r= 0.473) parameters of TA. In IA, there was a significant correlation between DiTins and DiTins-ex parameters and Peak Power (r= 0.495 and 0.435, respectively) and average power (r= 0.483 and 0.446, respectively). No significant correlation in all parameters of the CON group (p<0.05). As a result, it was determined that athletes with high diaphragm thickness had higher anaerobic performance, and athletes with thinner diaphragm thickness had better VO2Max capacity. The diaphragm thickness of the athletes in individual branches was thicker than the team athletes, and their anaerobic performance was also higher.

RESUMEN: El objetivo principal de este estudio fue examinar la correlación entre el rendimiento aeróbico y anaeróbico del grosor del diaframa en atletas. Dicho estudio se realizó con 15 deportistas de equipo (TA) (edad 21,80 ± 2,40 años), 15 deportistas individuales (IA) (edad 18,93 ± 2,31 años) y el grupo control (CON) 10 personas con sedentarismo (edad 23,60 ± 2,91 años). Se midió, el grosor del diaframa (ultrasonografía en modo B), la función respiratoria (espirometría y presiones máximas inspiratorias (MIP) y espiratorias (MEP), prueba de resistencia intermitente yo- yo de capacidad aeróbica 1 (YYIET-1) y resistencia anaeróbica potencia por Monark 834 E. El grosor del diafragma se determinó a partir del espacio intercostal entre las costillas 8 y 9 en el momento de la espiración por ultrasonido y del espacio intercostal entre las costillas 10 y 11 en la inspiración. Hubo una correlación positiva entre los parámetros DiT ins (r= 0,477) y DiTins-ex (r= 0,473) de TA. En IA, hubo una correlación significativa entre los parámetros DiTins y DiTins-ex y el pico Potencia (r= 0,495 y 0,435, respectivamente) y potencia media (r= 0,483 y 0,446, respectivamente). No hubo correlación significativa en todos los parámetros del grupo CON (p<0,05). Como resultado, se determinó que los atletas con mayor espesor del diaframa tenían un mayor rendimiento anaeróbico, y los atletas con menor espesor del diaframa tenían una mejor capacidad de VO2Max. El grosor del diafragma de los atletas en ramas individuales fue mayor que el de los atletas de equipo, y su rendimiento anaeróbico también fue mayor.

Abstract Borrelia burgdorferi infection (Lyme disease) is one of the few identifiable causes of neuralgic amyotrophy (AN). Bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis is considered rare in borreliosis, and the pattern of long-term recovery of diaphragm function is also uncertain. Transdiaphragmatic pressure is the gold standard for diagnosing bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis, a study that has been reported on a few occasions. We pres ent a case of AN associated with borrelia infection and bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis that provides a detailed follow-up of the spirometric evolution, the maximum static pressures in the mouth, and the transdiaphragmatic pressure from the onset of symptoms and in the long term. This case allows us to know one of the possible evolutionary profiles of diaphragmatic dysfunction in AN due to borreliosis.

Resumen La infección por Borrelia burgdorferi (enfermedad de Lyme) es una de las pocas causas identificables de amiotrofia neurálgica. La parálisis diafragmática bilateral es considerada rara en la borreliosis y el patrón de recuperación a largo plazo de la función del diafragma también es incierto. La presión transdiafragmática es el patrón de oro para el diagnóstico de parálisis diafragmática bilateral, un estudio que ha sido informado en pocas ocasiones. Se presenta un caso de amiotrofia neurálgica asociado a infección por Borrelia y parálisis diafrag mática bilateral, que aporta un seguimiento detallado de la evolución espirométrica, de las presiones estáticas máximas en la boca y de la presión transdiafragmática desde el inicio de los síntomas y a largo plazo. Este caso permite conocer uno de los posibles perfiles evolutivos de la disfunción diafragmática en la amiotrofia neurálgica por borreliosis.

RESUMO Objetivo O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a cinética diafragmática, a função respiratória e a dosagem sérica de leptina e citocinas inflamatórias (IL-6 e TNF-α) em três grupos clínicos: obeso, asmático e saudável. Métodos Estudo clínico-exploratório realizado com 73 jovens (12-24 anos, sendo 42,5% do sexo masculino) alocados em três grupos: obesidade (GO, n = 33), índice de massa corporal (IMC z-score) ≥ + 2 e asmáticos leves controlados (GA, n = 26), classificados pela GINA, e grupo controle saudável (GC, n = 14). Os participantes foram submetidos à ultrassonografia diafragmática, espirometria, pressão respiratória máxima, níveis séricos de leptina e níveis de IL-6 e TNF-α em hemocultura total. Resultados A espessura do diafragma foi maior no GO em comparação ao GA e GC (2,0 ± 0,4 vs 1,7 ± 0,5 e 1,6 ± 0,2, respectivamente, com p < 0,05). A ventilação voluntária máxima (VVM) foi significativamente menor no GO e GA em relação ao GC (82,8 ± 21,4 e 72,5 ± 21,2 vs 102,8 ± 27,3, respectivamente, com p < 0,05). O GO tem a maior taxa de leptina entre todos os grupos (com os outros dois grupos, p < 0,05). Os três grupos tinham níveis semelhantes de TNF-α e IL-6. Conclusão A hipertrofia muscular encontrada no diafragma de indivíduos obesos pode ser justificada pelo aumento do trabalho respiratório imposto pela condição crônica da doença. Esse aumento de espessura não ocorreu em asmáticos leves controlados. Os marcadores IL-6 e TNF-α não detectaram evidências de inflamação muscular, embora fosse esperado que a leptina estivesse alterada em indivíduos obesos. Pacientes obesos e asmáticos apresentaram menor resistência pulmonar do que os saudáveis.

ABSTRACT Objective The aim of this study was to assess the diaphragm kinetics, respiratory function, and serum dosage of leptin and inflammatory cytokines (IL-6 and TNF-α) in three clinical groups: obese, asthmatic, and healthy. Methods This is a clinical exploratory study performed on 73 youths (12-24 years of age, 42.5% male) allocated into three groups: obesity (OG, n=33), body mass index (BMIz-score) ≥ +2, asthmatic (AG, n=26) controlled mild asthmatics, classified by GINA, and Healthy Control Group (CG, n=14). The participants were subjected to diaphragmatic ultrasound, spirometry, maximal respiratory pressure, serum leptin levels, and IL-6 and TNF-α whole blood cell culture levels. Results Diaphragm thickness was higher in OG in comparison to AG and CG (2.0±0.4 vs 1.7±0.5 and 1.6±0.2, both with p<0.05). Maximal voluntary ventilation (MVV) was significantly lower in OG and AG in relation to the CG (82.8±21.4 and 72.5±21.2 vs 102.8±27.3, both with p<0.05). OG has the highest leptin rate among the groups (with the other two groups had p<0.05). All groups had similar TNF-α and IL-6 levels. Conclusion The muscular hypertrophy found in the diaphragm of the obese individuals can be justified by the increase in respiratory work imposed by the chronic condition of the disease. Such increase in thickness did not occur in controlled mild asthmatics. The IL-6 and TNF-α markers detected no evidence of muscle inflammation, even though leptin was expected to be altered in obese individuals. Both obese and asthmatic patients had lower pulmonary resistance than the healthy ones.

La respiración es un proceso continuo donde los músculos respiratorios tienen un rol central e imprescindible para la vida. Su óptimo funcionamiento involucra diversas estructuras que deben funcionar de forma armónica y coordinada, para que el gasto energético asociado a sus demandas permita aumentos considerables de carga sin afectar mayormente la función esencial de intercambio gaseoso. Comprender la fisiología muscular, desde la base anatómica hasta su comportamiento en el ejercicio y la enfermedad, es fundamental para detectar con anticipación las diversas disfunciones que se producen cuando este equilibrio se descompensa. El objetivo de esta revisión es entregar las bases fisiológicas del comportamiento de la musculatura respiratoria que permitan comprender y aplicar las mejores estrategias de evaluación y tratamiento, cuando la función normal se ve alterada, ya sea por enfermedad, desuso o altas cargas asociadas al ejercicio físico.

Breathing is a continuous process where the respiratory muscles have a central and essential role for life. Its optimal operation involves various structures that must work in a harmonious and coordinated way, so that the energy expenditure associated with their demands allows considerable increases in load without significantly affecting the essential function of gas exchange. Understanding muscle physiology, from the anatomical basis to its behavior in exercise and disease, is essential to anticipate the various dysfunctions that can occur when this balance is decompensated. The objective of this review is to provide physiological bases for the behavior of the respiratory muscles that allow understanding and applying the best evaluation and treatment strategies, when its correct functioning is altered, either due to illness, disuse or high loads associated with physical exercise.

RESUMEN La unión del tubo esofágico con el estómago en lo que denominamos el cardias, su tránsito y relacio nes con el hiato diafragmático, las estructuras fibromembranosas que la fijan y envuelven, la existencia de un esfínter gastroesofágico anatómico y su real morfología, así como la interacción de todos estos elementos, han sido materia de controversia por décadas y aún hoy. Este artículo actualiza la descrip ción de tales estructuras.

ABSTRACT The point where the esophagus connects to the stomach, known as the cardia, its transition and re lationship with the diaphragmatic hiatus, its fibromembranous attachments, the existence of an ana tomic gastroesophageal sphincter and its real morphology, and the interaction between all these ele ments, have been subject of debate for decades that still persist. The aim of this article is to describe the updated information of such structures.

Introdução: Durante sua carreira o cantor lírico sofre grande demanda e consequente alteração da coordenação dos músculos respiratórios, porém não se sabe se estas exigências podem alterar a mobilidade e tonicidade no principal músculo da respiração, o diafragma. Objetivos: Avaliar e comparar a tonicidade e a mobilidade do diafragma de cantores líricos profissionais e de não-cantores. Participaram do estudo 15 cantores líricos profissionais em plena carreira e 24 adultos não-cantores com idades e IMCs equivalentes. Métodos: Duas avaliações foram empregadas: para avaliar a mobilidade costal foi utilizada a parte referente a avaliação desse parâmetro da Manual Evaluation of the Diaphragm Scale (MED Scale); para avaliar a tonicidade diafragmática a avaliação descrita por Rial e Pinsach em 2015. Resultados: Os resultados mostraram que a distribuição da avaliação manual do diafragma no grupo dos cantores apresentou distribuição significativamente diferente, tendo p < 0,05, com relação à tonicidade bilateral do diafragma, apresentando maior hipertonicidade em relação ao grupo controle, e que não houve diferenças significativas em relação à mobilidade. Conclusão: Os gestos artísticos usados pelos cantores líricos profissionais afetam a tonicidade do diafragma. (AU)

Introduction: The professional lyrical singers during their careers suffer great demand and consequent alteration of the coordination of the respiratory muscles, however it is not known if these requirements can alter the mobility and tonicity in the main muscle of the breath, the diaphragm. Objectives: To evaluate and compare diaphragm tonicity and mobility of professional lyric singers and non-singers. The study included 15 professional lyric singers in their full careers and 24 non-singing adults of equivalent ages and BMIs. Methods: Two forms of manual evaluation of the diaphragm were used: to assess costal mobility, the part of the manual evaluation to evaluate this parameter was used the Manual Evaluation of the Diaphragm Scale (MED Scale); and to evaluate the diaphragmatic tonicity the evaluation described by Rial and Pinsach in 2015. Results: The results showed that the distribution of the manual evaluation of the diaphragm in the group of singers presented a significantly different distribution, with p < 0,05, in relation to the bilateral diaphragm tonicity, presenting them with greater hypertonicity in relation to the control group, and that there were no significant differences regarding mobility. Conclusion: The artistic gestures used by professional lyric singers affect the tone of the diaphragm. (AU)

Resumen: Introducción: El marcapasos diafragmático permite reducir o eliminar la necesidad de ventilación mecánica en pacientes con insuficiencia respiratoria crónica que conservan el eje nervio frénico-diafragma in tacto, siempre que no presenten enfermedad pulmonar intrínseca. Aunque su implantación ha sido practicada por décadas, su uso no está ampliamente difundido, y existe poca literatura pu blicada al respecto, la mayoría relacionada con lesión medular alta y síndrome de hipoventilación central congénito. Objetivo: Describir una experiencia de implantación de marcapasos diafragmático en paciente pediátrico con síndrome de hipoventilación central adquirido. Caso Clínico: Pa ciente femenino con síndrome de hipoventilación central secundario a lesión isquémica de tronco cerebral como resultado de disfunción de válvula de derivación ventrículo peritoneal, motivo por el cual durante 5 años se mantuvo con asistencia de ventilación mecánica intrahospitalaria. A los 7 años de edad se implantó marcapasos diafragmático mediante cirugía toracoscópica, lo que per mitió posterior a un periodo de rehabilitación y acondicionamiento respiratorio el destete de la ventilación mecánica y el egreso hospitalario. Conclusiones: El marcapasos diafragmático es una opción factible, potencialmente segura y costo efectiva para disminuir o eliminar la dependencia de ventilación mecánica y mejorar la calidad de vida en pacientes con síndrome de hipoventilación central adquirido.

Abstract: Introduction: Diaphragmatic pacemaker is a device that reduces or eliminates the need of mechanical ventilation in patients with chronic respiratory failure who keep the phrenic nerve-diaphragm axis intact, as long as they do not present intrinsic lung disease. Although its implantation has been practiced for deca des, its use is not widespread and to date, there is little published literature about it, mostly related to high spinal cord injury and congenital central hypoventilation syndrome. Objective: To describe an experience of diaphragmatic pacemaker implantation in a pediatric patient with acquired cen tral hypoventilation syndrome. Clinical Case: Female patient with central hypoventilation syndrome secondary to ischemic brainstem lesion as a result of ventriculoperitoneal shunt malfunction. For this reason, for 5 years she was supported by inpatient mechanical ventilation. At 7 years of age, a diaphragmatic pacemaker was implanted by thoracoscopic surgery, which allowed, after a period of rehabilitation and respiratory conditioning, mechanical ventilation withdrawal, and hospital dischar ge. Conclusions: Diaphragmatic pacemaker is a feasible, potentially safe, and cost-effective option for decreasing or eliminating mechanical ventilation dependence and improve life quality in patients with acquired central hypoventilation syndrome.

Introducción: La ruptura diafragmática es un reto diagnóstico y terapéutico para los médicos que se enfrentan al manejo de pacientes politraumatizados; debe sospecharse siempre en lesiones traumáticas de localización torácica o abdominal. Objetivo: Informar los elementos diagnósticos y terapéuticos seguidos ante ruptura diafragmática y esplénica de origen traumático. Presentación del caso: Se presenta el caso de un adolescente de 14 años que ingresa por presentar herida punzante por arma blanca de localización abdominal y manifestaciones clínicas que permiten hacer el diagnóstico de la afección tratada. Durante el acto quirúrgico se comprobó la ruptura del diafragma, hernia diafragmática y ruptura esplénica con salida de sangre hacia la cavidad abdominal. Se realizó reducción de la hernia, sutura del diafragma y extirpación del bazo por el estado del órgano en el momento de la cirugía. Conclusiones: La ruptura diafragmática postraumática es una entidad que cada vez se observa con mayor frecuencia en pacientes pediátricos. El examen clínico auxiliado por estudios imagenológicos resulta vital para su diagnóstico, tratamiento precoz y evitar complicaciones. Es importante mantener un alto índice de sospecha ante esta entidad poco frecuente, pero no rara en la edad pediátrica. El paciente tuvo una evolución favorable y fue egresado del servicio de cirugía luego de 10 días de hospitalización(AU)

Introduction: The diaphragmatic rupture is a diagnostic and a therapeutic challenge for physicians who have to face the management of polytraumatized patients; there must always be suspicion on traumatic injuries of thoracic or abdominal location. Objective: To inform the diagnostic and therapeutic elements followed in case of diaphragmatic and splenic rupture of traumatic origin. Presentation of the case: 14-year-old male teenager that was admitted for presenting stabbing wound by sharp weapon, with abdominal location and clinical manifestations that allow making the diagnosis of the condition being treated.

En humanos, PaCO2 es controlada muy estrictamente. A diferencia de PaO2 y todas las pruebas funcionales respiratorias que cambian con la edad, PaCO2 permanece constante durante toda la vida. Por lo tanto, su desviación sostenida representa una alteración significativa de la homeostasis. La estructura responsable de mantener la PaCO2 dentro de límites muy estrechos es la bomba ventilatoria. Se compone de varias unidades anatómicas y funcionales que van desde la corteza cerebral hasta los músculos respiratorios. Varias condiciones clínicas que involucran estas estructuras pueden conducir a la insuficiencia de la bomba respiratoria, cuyo sello distintivo es la hipercapnia. La relevancia del concepto de bomba respiratoria ha sido reconocida a lo largo de las décadas. Unos pocos trabajos germinales abrieron la puerta a un notable número de proyectos básicos, aplicados y clínicos en torno a la insuficiencia de la bomba respiratoria y su relevancia clínica. Este artículo revisará algunos de estos estudios y narrará el camino hacia nuestro estado actual de conocimiento sobre el tema.

IIn humans, PaCO2 is very strictly controlled. Unlike PaO2 and all respiratory functional tests that change with age, PaCO2 remains constant throughout life. Therefore, its sustained deviation represents a significant alteration of homeostasis. The structure responsible for keeping PaCO2 within very narrow limits is the ventilatory pump. It consists of several anatomical and functional units that go from the cerebral cortex to the respiratory muscles. Several clinical conditions involving these structures can lead to failure of the respiratory pump, whose hallmark is hypercapnia. The relevance of the respiratory pump concept has been acknowledged for decades. A few initial works allowed for a remarkable number of basic, applied and clinical projects regarding the respiratory pump failure and its clinical relevance. This article reviews some of these studies and describes the process that lead to our current state of knowledge on the subject
