We describe an experimental study in which morphometric techniques are used to question traditional conceptions about the behavior of the alveolus under changes in pressure. An increase in inflation pressure in the lung results in alveolar recruitment (an increase in distal air spaces) due to stretching of its walls. To test this hypothesis, the lungs of(More)
INTRODUCTION Liquid lung fixing through the trachea to a pressure of 25 cmH2O is currently accepted to be ideal. However, some studies do not seem to confirm that assumption. MATERIAL AND METHODS The lungs of Fischer rats were filled with fixing liquid to four different pressures: 20 cm, 25 cm, 30 cm and 35 cmH2O. The fixed lungs were processed for(More)
