In anesthetized cats, within the range of intermittent transpulmonary pressure (from -8 to +8 mm Hg) no significant shifts of the filtration-absorption balance were revealed. At the transpulmonary pressure +14 mm Hg the capillary hydrostatic pressure increased by 30% and filtration prevailed over absorption. Similar changes could occur at +8 mm Hg in case… CONTINUE READING
