Six dogs anesthetized with 30 mg/kg pentobarbital were ventilated after differential cannulation of the main stem bronchi. Following sternotomy, blood flow was monitored by electromagnetic flow probes on the left pulmonary artery (QL) and on the pulmonary trunk or aorta (QT). Following 10 min of bilateral 100% O2, QL was 37.4 +/- 5.8% of QT. When left lung atelectasis was induced while the right lung remained on 100% O2, PaO2 remained above 75 mm Hg and QL fell to 26.1 +/- 5.0% of QT. However… CONTINUE READING
