Pulmonary vasoconstriction plays a key role in distribution of the blood flow in response to alveolar hypoxia thus providing adequate gas exchange. We review interspecies and interindividual differences, basic mechanisms, clinical meaning and pharmacological methods of modulation of the hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction.
