HEART AND LUNGS_bak.JPG

Simple facts about Heart and Lungs
The heart and lungs work together. The heart depends on the lungs
for oxygen rich blood and the lungs depend on the heart to pump
the oxygenated blood around the body.

Respiratory distress may occur if the lungs are deprived of adequate
oxygenation. Causes include but are not confined to:
COPD, ARDS and trauma.
Intubation and mechanical ventilation may be required for the patient
in respiratory distress.
