During ascent to high altitude and pulmonary edema, the alveolar epithelial cells (AEC) are exposed to hypoxic conditions. Hypoxia inhibits alveolar fluid reabsorption and decreases Na,K-ATPase(More)
Mechanical ventilation with high tidal volume (HVT) causes lung injury and decreases the lung's ability to clear edema in rats. beta-adrenergic agonists increase active Na(+) transport and lung edema(More)
