The extravascular thermal volume of the lung (ETV) has been measured in dogs as the difference between mean transit time (t) volumes for heat and indocyanine green dye across the pulmonary circulation, calculated as the product of thermal dilution cardiac output (CO) and the difference in t for aortic indicator-dilution curves generated by right and left atrial injections. ETV measurements were compared with the extravascular lung mass (ELM): in 21 normal dogs, ETV/ELM = 1.11 +/- 0.14 (SD); in… CONTINUE READING
