A murine model of sepsis following smoke inhalation injury.

Abstract

Acute lung injury (ALI) by smoke inhalation with subsequent pneumonia and sepsis represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality in burn patients. The aim of the present study was to develop a murine model of ALI and sepsis to enhance the knowledge of mechanistic aspects and pathophysiological changes in patients with these injuries.
