Epithelial and endothelial flux after bypass in dogs: effect of positive end-expiratory pressure.


Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) causes lung injury that occasionally progresses to the adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We measured the effect of 10 cmH2O of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) on small solute and protein flux in dogs 1 wk before and 2 h after the completion of CPB. As an index of alveolar epithelial permeability, the clearance… (More)
