OBJECTIVE To determine whether laryngeal hemiplegia would increase transmural pulmonary artery pressure (TPAP). ANIMALS 6 horses. DESIGN Horses were studied under 5 conditions: control conditions, after induction of left laryngeal hemiplegia, during obstruction of the left nostril, after placement of an instrumented tracheostomy, and after placement of an open tracheostomy. Horses were evaluated after being given saline solution and after being given furosemide. PROCEDURES Horses were… CONTINUE READING
