THE RESPIRATORY PULSE


THE RESPIRATORY PULSE IS LEADER PARAMETER OF NEW ADVANCES IN KNOWLEDGE CONCERNING THE LUNG'S AUTONOMIC MECHANICS FOR RESPIRATION IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND THE ORGANIC DYNAMIC INTEGRATION

 

THE RESPIRATORY PULSE IS THE RESULTANT OF THE PULMONARY LOBES' DYNAMICS IN THEIR ENSEMBLE, BEING DETECTED AND MONITORED ON THEIR PLEURAL SURFACES.

THE NEW THEORY OF RESPIRATORY DYNAMICS IS THE PARAMOUNT IMMEDIATE CONSEQUENCE OF THIS DISCOVERY

 

THIS WEB SITE HAS BEEN CREATED AS A COMMEMORATION OF THE TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DISCOVERY OF THE RESPIRATORY PULSE (1978-1998), DEPARTING POINT OF NEW SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE, ENABLING A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF NATURAL LIFE IN HEALTH AND ILLNESS ALSO SOWING HOPES FOR A SOONER APPLICATION IN MEDICAL STUDY AND HEALTHCARE.

 

MEDICAL TEACHING AND PRACTICE TODAY MUST CHANGE THEIR WAY OF THINKING ABOUT OUR LIVING ORGANISM, FOCUSSING IT AS A NATURAL STRUCTURE DESIGNED TO WORK AS A BALANCED UNITARY COMPLEX SYSTEM OF FLUID MECHANICS UNDER PULMO-CARDIAC LEADERSHIP, COMMANDED BY THE VAGUS-SYMPATHETIC NERVE AND CONTROLLED BY THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, IN INTEGRATION WITH THE ATMOSPHERE


This pressure-time graph shows the cyclic pressure variation of four simultaneous parameter concerned with Respiration and air circulation throughout two hemi-circuits. From the highest to the lowest in the scale 1. Respiratory Pulse. 2. Pleural pressure. 3. Tracheal airflow pressure. 4. Tracheal wall pressure.

 

IN THIS MODEL OF ORGANISATION, THE LUNG PERFORMS THE MOST COMPLEX ROLE FROM THE VERY MOMENT OF BIRTH, BECOMES THE LEADER, ENABLING THE FOETUS INTEGRATION AND ADAPTATION TO THE ATMOSPHERE WHILE ALSO BALANCING THE HEART AND CIRCULATORY SYSTEM.

 

TO HUMANKIND

In defence of created Life in Health by means of application of the New scientific Knowledge of Vital Functions here proposed for study and discussion.

INVITATION

I, Américo González-Bogen, M.D. Prof. discoverer of the Respiratory Pulse and only Author of the proposed knowledge here displayed, in my name, as well as in the name of the independent non profit making Scientific Foundation "The Respiratory Pulse" of which I am the creator and President, cordially invite University Professors and Researchers. Scientists. Academics. Concerned Foundations. Institutions. Policy-makers. Teachers. Communication media. International Organisations, the U. N. UNESCO. General public, to join me in this Scientific crusade.

Given that every body will be a beneficiary, I beg your interest and offer my unlimited reciprocal collaboration.

Thanking you in advance,

Sincerely

Américo González-Bogen MD. Proff.

INTRODUCTION

The core of this web site is to try and gather the widest possible concerned audience world wide, to join together in the present campaign for promotion of the new scientific knowledge here displayed for reasoned discussion

Consequently, the invitation is also to favour the best understanding of alterations of Health due to individual factors, congenital or acquired, to improve Healthcare on the basis of a better interpretation of the vital functions.

As the Author, I have developed my studies with absolute dedication for over twenty five years and twenty years since I discovered the "Respiratory Pulse".

Therefore, You will find here a huge amount of new contributions to Scientific knowledge, and a guide to the source of its analysis, progressive interpretation and experimental demonstrations.

It is displayed here:

1. The profile of the Respiratory Pulse developed since its discovery, shown its protagonist role in the interpretation of cyclic performance of the Lung's autonomic-automatic mechanics, with two different kinds of rhythm, leading to pulmonary and tissue respiration,

2. The role of thoracic and abdominal walls as mechanical visceral support and performer of complementary reflex actions demanded by the Lung for the balanced integration of the cardio-circulatory dynamics. This integration makes of the Trunk a viscero-somatic working unit for both pulmonary and tissue respiration.

3. The Vagus-Sympathetic autonomic System as Chief Commander of the Lung-Heart Integrated Dynamics.

4. The complex design and structure of the organism to enable the achievement of the genetically programmed actions and reactions: The role of Acetilcholine and Adrenaline in Lung's dynamics. Viscero-somatic and somato-somatic reflexes to integrate visceral and somatic working structures. Sphincters, floodgates, presses. everything necessary for the performance of successive and/or simultaneous potential actions to produce necessary effects. All this and Universal Dynamics as it is manifested in our ecosystems, complete the sphere of conditions for organic Life on Earth, according to the Unitary Conception of Nature.

You are entering the scene of the proposed Scientific Revolution in the field of Life in Health in its natural integration with Atmosphere. What is lacking now is the work necessary for its universal confirmation and approvals so as to provide the potential benefits to its natural destination: HUMANKIND

PRESENTATION

The scientific and social matter of this Web site is presented in three parts, for didactic purposes, in order to ease the approach to the proposed knowledge, given its complexity and extension.

THE FIRST PART has been specially prepared for this occasion, as Commemoration of the Twentieth Anniversary of the Discovery of the Respiratory Pulse. This part displays updated advances in knowledge and considerations about its importance for Society and Human Welfare. (This matter will also be printed in the issue COMMEMORATION of INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR THE RESPIRATORY PULSE. Scientific Review, prepared for this occasion)

Some of the proposed new concepts could appear as very abstract and even complex, yet motivators of their progressive approach, following the way in which they were being developed.

I also suggest here, under the title of PROPOSAL a method for approaching the study and discussion of the New Knowledge by means of workshops.

THE SECOND PART is an introduction to the source of the proposed knowledge as developed and published in my books.

THE THIRD PART is a now empty space to display potential new materials in the future, making it ease to be founded for our friends and followers.

My immediate, concrete purpose is that this reasoned discussion be oriented to succeed in the necessary consensus of the need for change, consequently, to actualise new programs for teaching as well as new tactics and procedures to be applied in healthcare, both preventive and curative.

These new programs, being in better accordance with the real nature of organic life, shall prevent or at least diminish negative effects derived from errors of the contrasted traditional medical practice (yatrogenia). This fact also generates ethical, disciplinary and legal consequences, since it enables us to distinguish what I have being attributing to institutionalised bad practice in the name of Science, from bad practice related to individual responsibilities.

Finally, as this Web site, as with my whole scientific work, is dedicated to benefit Mankind, without any profit making purpose, I feel I can beg the widest efficient collaboration on analysis and reasoned discussion of my proposals, for their soonest application.
