Effect of epinephrine on alveolar liquid clearance in the rat.


Endogenous epinephrine has been found to increase alveolar liquid clearance (ALC) in several pulmonary edema models. In this study, we infused epinephrine intravenously for 1 h in anesthetized rats to produce plasma epinephrine concentrations commonly observed in this species under stressful conditions and measured ALC by mass balance. Epinephrine increased… (More)
