In three foxhounds after left pneumonectomy, the relationships of ventilatory work and respiratory muscle (RM) blood flow to ventilation (VE) during steady-state exercise were examined. VE was measured using a specially constructed respiratory mask and a pneumotach; work of breathing was measured by the esophageal balloon technique. Blood flow to RM was measured by the radionuclide-labeled microsphere technique. Lung compliance after pneumonectomy was 55% of that before pneumonectomy; compliance of the thorax was unchanged. O2 uptake (VO2) of RM comprised only 5% of total body VO2 at exercise. At rest, inspiratory muscles received 62% and expiratory muscles 38% of the total O2 delivered to the RM (QO2RM). During exercise, inspiratory muscles received 59% and expiratory muscles 41% of total QO2RM. Blood flow per gram of muscle to the costal diaphragm was significantly higher than that to the crural diaphragm. The diaphragm, parasternals, and posterior cricoarytenoids were the most important inspiratory muscles, and internal intercostals and external obliques were the most important expiratory muscles for exercise. Up to a VE of 120 l/min through one lung, QO2RM constituted only a small fraction of total body VO2 during exercise and maximal vasodilation in the diaphragm was never approached.
