Changes in lung ultrastructure following heterologous and homologous serum albumin infusion in the treatment of hemorrhagic shock.


The object of this study was to compare the ultrastructure pulmonary effects of the infusion of homologous and heterologous serum albumin solution in the treatment of hemorrhagic shock in baboons. Adult baboons subjected to hemorrhagic shock were resuscitated with either baboon serum albumin, human serum albumin, or Ringer's lactate solution. The lungs were… (More)
