One subcutaneous injection of monocrotaline in young Sprague-Dawley rats produces interstitial alveolar edema, platelets accumulation, interstitial pneumonitis, foci of pulmonary atelectasis and the development of giant granular pneumocytes. Monocrotaline is a poison which readily injures the cellular components of the alveolar wall. Increased pulmonary capillary endothelium permeability is observed shortly after the alkaloid administration.

    Acute alveolar hypoxia often causes pulmonary edema which is associated with pulmonary inflammation and later on, with transition into fibrosis. Strong sympathetic activation and elevated plasma levels of catecholamines (CAs) induce similar changes in the lung. Adrenergic mechanisms are involved...

Two forms of postobstructive pulmonary edema (POPE) have been identified. POPE I follows sudden, severe upper airway obstruction....
