Respiratory failure in the elderly

Respiratory failure (respiratory failure) is not a disease, it is a clinical syndrome caused by various causes, which is seriously damaged by lung function, causing hypoxia or co * retention of carbon dioxide, which leads to a series of physiological dysfunction and metabolic disorders. At the same time, because respiratory failure has no obvious clinical characteristics in the early stage, it is generally necessary to make a clear diagnosis through laboratory arterial blood gas analysis.
