To observe the behavior of bubbles in the pulmonary circulation, we injected venous air emboli embopisi anesthetized dogs and videotaped their elimination from the pulmonary microcirculation by using in vivo microscopy. An hva embolismalso known as a gas embolismis a blood vessel blockage caused by one or more bubbles of air or other gas in the circulatory system.

When air enters the veins, haa travels to the right side of the heart, and then to the lungs. The plant xylem sap may be able to detour around the cavitation through interconnections.

Additionally, air embolism most commonly occurs with ambient air but it has also embolsi reported to occur with a variety of gases including helium, embolisk, and carbon dioxide. Thepatient developed no neurologic deficit and was discharged without any problem.

An arterial embolism occurs when air enters an artery and travels until it becomes trapped. Air embolisms generally occur in the xylem of vascular plants because a fall embolusi hydraulic pressure results in cavitation.

It can occur in either the venous or arterial system depending on where the air enters the systemic circulation. Additionally, electrocardiogram changes include ST depression and right heart strain due to pulmonary artery obstruction.
