There are a number of mechanisms. One is gravity, which Fig. 5. Ventilation with a single-lumen endobronchial catheter and by lateral PEEP (1) and ventilation with an endobronchial double-lumen catheter with equal distribution of ventilation and selective PEEP to the lower lung only (2). For further details see text Effect of body position on ventilation/perfusion matching 13 forces blood flow to dependent lung regions irrespective of body position. There is also ‘gravitationally’ oriented distribution of ventilation as a consequence of the vertical pleural pressure gradient and a curved pressure–volume relationship of the lung.
