To assess the effect of partial liquid ventilation with perfluorocarbons on hemodynamics and gas exchange in large pigs with induced acute lung injury (ALI). Randomized, prospective, double-control, experimental study. Experimental intensive care unit of a university. Eighteen large pigs (50±5 kg body weight) with an average anterior posterior thoracic diameter of 24 cm and induced acute lung injury. All animals were surfactant depleted by lung lavage to aP aO2 below 100 mmHg and randomized to… CONTINUE READING
