Other tests for known diagnoses: – Haematinics/iron studies: to investigate the cause of anaemia. – Sickle cell screen: patients with a family history of sickle cell disease. – Thyroid function: patients with a history of thyroid disease. Urinalysis: = to screen for urinary tract infections and abnormalities.

Chest radiograph: = indications include thoracic surgery, cardiac/respiratory disease, known or suspected malignancy or those from a region with endemic tuberculosis.

Ventilation and perfusion MICRO-facts West zones divide the lungs up anatomically according to the pressure of the arteries, veins and alveoli. There are three zones. The top zone has good ventilation, but poor perfusion. In the middle zone both are good. The lower zone has good perfusion but poor ventilation. = In healthy individuals ventilation (V ) and perfusion (Q ) are well matched: When erect, lung bases are better perfused but not as well ventilated as the apices. = Because Q falls more than V from base to apex, the apex has a higher V /Q ratio than the base and vice versa.

11 Systolic (SBP), diastolic (DBP) and mean (MAP) blood pressures. = Diastolic BP (DBP): Minimum arterial pressure, occurring just before blood is ejected from the ventricles. = Pulse pressure (PP): = This is the difference between the SBP and the DBP. It is felt when palpating an artery. = PP is affected by several variables: – SV; – speed of SV ejection; – arterial compliance (which reduces with age and arteriosclerosis). = Mean arterial pressure (MAP): = The most accurate reflection of how well a person is maintaining perfusion is their MAP.
