A Three-Compartment Model of Osmotic Water Exchange in the Lung Microvasculature

Abstract

A bolus injection of hypertonic NaCl into the pulmonary arterial circulation of an isolated perfused dog lung causes the osmotic movement of water first into, and then out of the capillary. The associated changes in blood constituent concentrations and density are referred to as the osmotic transient (OT). Measurement of the sound conduction velocity of… (More)
