Effects of intravascular volume expansion on lung fluid balance in a canine model of septic shock.


We tested the early effects of endotoxin on both the permeability of capillary membranes and microvascular pressure. One group of dogs (n = 8) were fluid loaded (30 ml/kg dextran-40) after having been subjected to a 2-h Escherichia coli endotoxin infusion (0.25 micrograms/kg X min). A second control group of animals (n = 6) was submitted to a similar (25 ml… (More)
