Abdominal lymph flow in an endotoxin sepsis model: influence of spontaneous breathing and mechanical ventilation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Lymph flow from the abdomen was investigated in a sepsis model. We also compared the effect on thoracic duct lymph flow of mechanical ventilation with different levels of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and spontaneous breathing with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). DESIGN Experimental study. SETTING Research laboratory in a… (More)
