“Respiratory Physiology in the times of COVID”
(Univ.-Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kübler, Berlin)
The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 not only triggered unprecedented scientific discovery in virology, immunology and vaccination, but also drove exceptional research efforts to understand the impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection on virtually all aspects of respiratory physiology. In this teaching lecture, we will revisit basic principles of respiratory physiology in health and disease, using COVID-19 as prime example. Discussions will comprise principles of lung mechanics and lung fluid homeostasis, gas exchange and ventilation-perfusion matching, oxygen transport, and control of breathing.
