The effect of different temperatures of perfusing fluid was tested on the pulmonary circulation of the rat. With increasing temperature, a decrease in overall pulmonary vascular resistance was observed, which depended on the associated reductions of arterial, venous and capillary vascular resistances. The highest sensitivity to temperature changes was exhibited by the venous segment. The overall sensitivity of pulmonary vessels to temperature caused a reduction in hydraulic resistance of about… CONTINUE READING
