[Effects of prostacyclin (PGI2) on the hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction in dogs].

Abstract

Effects of exogenous PGI2 on the hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) were investigated by measuring %QLLL and the ratio of the left lower lobe blood flow (QLLL) to the total pulmonary blood flow (QT), in separately ventilated canine in vivo model. With PGI2 infusion, %QLLL, that had decreased from 20.7 +/- 1.9% to 4.1 +/- 1.1% by the hypoxic gas… (More)
