At high altitude the response also may be highly variable between individuals, explaining why some patients develop pulmonary hypertension with respiratory disease and some do not. Mechanism of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction This is not fully elucidated. There is likely to be a direct action on smooth muscle and an indirect effect on endothelium-dependent systems. Proposed components include the following: • Hypoxia may have a direct effect on pulmonary vascular smooth muscle by altering the membrane potential, affecting potassium channels, which in turn activate voltage-gated calcium channels to produce contraction.

Blood flow per unit lung volume increases by about 11% per centimetre of descent. Ventilation increases less so, resulting in a smaller V·/Q· ratio in dependent areas. It is now accepted that gravity is not the only factor affecting regional blood flow and may only account for 10–40% of regional blood flow variability. Pulmonary blood flow also varies in a radial fashion, with greater flow to central than peripheral lung regions in each horizontal slice. This results simply from the branching pattern of the pulmonary vasculature.

Causes of hypoxia • Regional mismatching of ventilation and perfusion (V·/Q·) in the lung. • Right to left shunting—deoxygenated venous blood mixes with arterialized blood without participating in gas exchange. Usually intrapulmonary, but may be intracardiac. • Reduced alveolar oxygen tension—hypoventilation, altitude, air travel. • Impaired diffusion of oxygen across the alveolar capillary membrane. Causes of hypercapnia • Reduced minute ventilation. • Inadequate central ventilatory drive. • Disorders of motor neurons, neuromuscular junction, or respiratory muscles.
