Since the pulmonary arteries carry unoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs for oxygenation, constriction of these arteries forces the right ventricle to work harder to push the blood toward the lungs.
During VF, the ventricular rate surges to 400-600/min, preventing effective contraction of the major pumping chambers that deliver unoxygenated blood to the lungs (right ventricle) and oxygenated blood to the rest of the body (left ventricle).
And the main artery was attached to only one ventricle instead of both - especially dangerous as it meant that her oxygenated and unoxygenated blood, which are normally kept separate, were mixed together.
These defects cause unoxygenated blood to dilute oxygenated arterial blood in general circulation and decrease blood flow to the lungs.
In a recent experiment, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in Philidelphia, working with Warren's group, have seen "huge contrast differences" between test tubes filled with oxygenated and unoxygenated blood, says Rahim Rizi, a Penn radiologist.
The methane/sulfur marsh-gas reek emerging from unoxygenated compost will not be readily forgotten.
The right side of her heart is severely underdeveloped, and blue unoxygenated blood was being pumped around the body.
