A good example is childbirth, in which the sequence of events, simply stated, is as follows: Stretching of the uterine cervix stimulates secretion of the hormone oxytocin by the posterior pituitary gland. Oxytocin stimulates contraction of the uterine muscle, which causes more stretching of the cervix as the baby is pushed through, which stimulates the secretion of more oxytocin and, hence, more contractions. The mechanism stops with the delivery of the baby and the placenta. This is the “brake,” the interrupting event.

Arterial blood normally has a high concentration of oxygen and a low concentration of carbon dioxide. These levels are maintained by gas exchange in the lungs and by the proper circulation of blood. A pulmonary disease such as pneumonia interferes with efficient gas exchange in the lungs. As a result, blood oxygen concentration may decrease, and blood carbon dioxide concentration may increase. Either of these changes in blood gases may become life threatening for the patient, so monitoring of blood gases is important.
