Early detection of acute lung injury uncoupled to hypoxemia in pigs using ultrasound lung comets.


OBJECTIVE Oleic acid-induced lung injury is an established experimental model of acute lung injury in pigs and is considered to reproduce the early exudative phase of acute respiratory distress syndrome. Ultrasound lung comets are an echographic sign of extravascular lung water, originating from thickened interlobular septa. The objective of this study was… (More)
