Investigates the local mechanisms that control the flow and distribution of blood to alveolar capillary beds. Approach to the application of a rapid freezing technique to the lung of a living animal; Relative importance of diffusion and chemical reaction rates in determining rate of exchange of gases in the human lung with special reference to true diffusing capacity of pulmonary membrane and volume of blood in the lung capillaries; Distribution of blood flow and ventilation-perfusion ratio in the lung.

    Objective: Partial liquid ventilation (PLV) improves gas exchange in animal studies of lung injury. Perfluorocarbons (PFCs) are heavy liquids and are therefore preferentially delivered to the most dependent areas of lung. We hypothesised that improved oxygenation during PLV might be the...

    The transition to extra-uterine life at birth represents a remarkable physiological challenge, particularly in pulmonary physiology as the lungs must immediately take over the role of gas exchange at birth. The extent of the change in pulmonary physiology that must occur at birth in order for...

    Orthogonal polarization spectral (OPS) imaging is used to assess mucosal microcirculation. We tested sensitivity and variability of OPS in the assessment of mesenteric blood flow ( Q sma) reduction. University Animal Laboratory. In eight pigs, Q sma was reduced in steps of 15% from baseline;...
