Signals are sent via two neurones: the pre-ganglionic and post-ganglionic. = Fibres are: = cholinergic (secreting acetylcholine); or = adrenergic (secreting noradrenaline). Sympathetic nervous system Pre-operative = Division of the nervous system responsible for the ‘fight or flight’ response; generally involved in preparing the body for periods of physiological stress. = Neuronal pathway: = The pre-ganglionic cell body lies in the intermediolateral horn of the spinal cord. = Fibres pass into the ganglia of the sympathetic chain via the anterior root of the spinal cord, the spinal nerve and the white ramus.

Roughly three-quarters of parasympathetic fibres are part of the vagus nerve (CN X). = The pre-ganglionic neurones pass all the way to the target organ. = Pre-ganglionic fibres synapse with post-ganglionic neurones located in the wall of the organ. = Nervous distribution: = CN III: supplies the eye ciliary ganglion, ciliary muscles of the eye, papillary sphincter. = CN VII: supplies the lacrimal glands, submandibular and sublingual glands. = CN IX: supplies the otic ganglion and parotid gland.

Optimal V /Q is usually in the lower middle zones. = VentilationÁperfusion mismatch (V /Q mismatch): = occurs when the blood flow to the alveoli and rate of gas exchange do not correlate; usually results in a low O2 concentration in arterial blood; = CO2 can also be raised in severe V /Q mismatch but to a much smaller degree (as CO2 is 20 times more soluble than O2). = V /Q mismatch can be caused by: = Ventilation problems: – Anything that increases resistance, reduces compliance or increases dead space will reduce ventilation capacity.
