Abstract : For the purpose of studying the functional state of the external respiration, investigations of the gaseous composition of the arterial blood in 52 children with different stages of chronic pneumonia were conducted. The content of oxyhemoglobin in the arterial blood was determined in 28 patients. There was found a reduced oxygen saturation of the arterial blood depending on the severity of the disease. Arterial hypoxemia was disclosed in all patients during the period of exacerbation. At the beginning of remission all these alterations are preserved; however, they are less pronounced. Arterial hypercapnia was noted during exacerbation in children with acute and brochiectatic stages of chronic pneumonia. (Author)
