Micropipettes (2-5 microns), in conjunction with a servo-nulling system, were used to measure liquid pressure (Pliq) in subpleural alveoli of lobes of dog lungs made edematous by perfusing with plasma to a constant extravascular weight gain (W). Pliq was measured at fixed transpulmonary pressure (Ptp) in lungs whose W was more than 0.5 that of the initial weight (Wi). In six lobes at W/Wi = 0.6, Pliq, relative to alveolar pressure (Palv), was -2.6 +/- 0.4 cmH2O (mean +/- SE), -11.8 +/- 0.6, and… CONTINUE READING
