What are the various types of respiratory failure? | Dr. Parthiv Shah | Best Pulmonologist in Mumbai

Type I (hypoxemic) respiratory failure, also known as "oxygen failure," is defined by a low level of oxygen in the blood without an increase in carbon dioxide. Type I respiratory failure occurs when the volume of air flowing into and out of the lungs differs from the volume of blood flowing into the lungs.
Type II (hypercapnic) respiratory failure, also known as "ventilatory failure," occurs when alveolar ventilation is unable to remove carbon dioxide from the blood efficiently, causing it to accumulate in the body.
