    The geometric patterns of the pulmonary microcirculation are similar in the cat, rabbit, and dog and consist essentially of right angle branching out to the precapillary alveolar vessels. The latter supply the alveolar wall as they course through the intersecting planes of adjacent alveoli. The...

    The effects of altered loading conditions on the pattern of pulmonary venous flow are poorly understood. The authors investigated such effects, therefore, by using volume loading in 6 open-chest dogs. The pulmonary venous flow volume rate curve was obtained with a transit-time ultrasonic...
