Abstract

Airway blood flow has (i) physiologic roles, including nourishment of the mucosa, conditioning of inspired air, and anastomotic blood supply to the lung, (ii) pathophysiological roles in airway inflammation and tissue repair after lung transplantation, and (iii) therapeutic roles by regulating the clearance of inhaled airway drugs. For the understanding of this circulation’s physiological and clinical implications, the measurement of bronchial blood flow is crucial.
