Assessment of pulmonary microvascular permeability in acutely prepared sheep.

Abstract

We hypothesized that the apparent difference in base-line lymph-to-plasma protein concentration ratios (L/P) between acutely and chronically prepared sheep is due to an underlying difference in pulmonary microvascular permeability. Therefore, we sought to determine the pulmonary microvascular osmotic reflection coefficient for acutely prepared sheep, in a… (More)
