  • In vagotomized and pentobarbital-anesthetized rats, massive pulmonary hemorrhagic edema was produced by cerebral compression (CC) or an injection of epinephrine (EP) 0.25 mg/kg. The pulmonary changes were induced following severe Cushing reaction manifested by systemic hypertension. We determined the dose-effect relationship of nitroglycerin (NTG) and nitroprusside (NPS) on the changes in systemic arterial pressure and lung pathology. The drugs were given by iv infusion 5 min before CC or EP… CONTINUE READING
