ABSTRACT
Describes the pulmonary vascular changes in newborn mice following exposure to increased oxygen tensions under moderate hyperbaic conditions. Susceptibility of immature tissues to oxygen intoxication; Indication of an increase of tissue peroxide after exposure to high concentration; role of fetal oxygenation in pulmonary dynamics immediately before and after birth; Presentation of histologic changes in the lungs with increased hemorrhagic exudation as compared with those animals with longer survival time.

    Introduction: Our group has developed a paracorporeal artificial lung (PAL) attached in a pulmonary artery (PA) to PA in series configuration to address profound respiratory failure and serve as a bridge to transplant and/or recovery. We recently designed, developed and converted our passive...

    The article proffers suggestions on surviving a heart attack when one is alone. One of the suggestions is to cough loudly, taking deep breath before each cough. Deep breaths fill oxygen in the lungs and the coughing compresses the heart, regulating the blood in circulation. This procedure must...

    Background: Chronic hypoxia induces pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation and hypertrophy are important contributors to the remodeling that occurs in chronic hypoxic pulmonary vasculature. We hypothesized that rapamycin (RAPA), a potent cell cycle...

    Background: Ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) causes acute kidney injury (AKI) and is a relevant complication in major cardiac surgery. In addition AKI is frequent in solid organ transplantation (tx): after lung tx the incidence is 50% and after heart tx with 75% even higher. AKI increases...

    Background: Mitochondrial activity inhibits proliferation and is required for differentiation of myoblasts. Myoblast proliferation is also inhibited by the ,20% oxygen level used in standard tissue culture. We hypothesize that mitochondrial activity would be greater at hyperoxia (20% O2)...

    Background: Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) is an essential mechanism of the lung that matches blood perfusion to alveolar ventilation to optimize gas exchange. Recently we have demonstrated that acute but not sustained HPV is critically dependent on the classical transient receptor...

    Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) is a physiological mechanism by which pulmonary arteries con-strict in hypoxic lung areas in order to redirect blood flow to areas with greater oxygen supply. Both oxygen sensing and the contractile response are thought to be intrinsic to pulmonary...
