This article focuses on cardiovascular dynamics in pneumopilricardium and hydropericardium. For this, mongrel dogs of from 12 to 15 kg were anesthetized by the use of intravenous Pentothal sodium. No animal suffered from excessive barbiturate anesthesia and all gave adequate responses. The pericardium was exposed through a left transthoracic incision. The fifth rib was removed to obtain adequate exposure and to assure firm fixation of the pericardial cannula. Utilizing a Palmer respirator, the animals were maintained on adequate volumes of room air through an intratracheal tube.
