Exposure to hyperoxia causes lung injury, decreases active sodium transport and lung edema clearance in rats. Dopamine (DA) increases lung edema clearance by stimulating vectorial Na+ flux and Na, K-ATPase function in rat alveolar epithelium. This study was designed to test whether DA (10(-)5 M) would increase lung edema clearance in rats exposed to 100% O2… CONTINUE READING
