Disruption of epithelial and endothelial barriers found in patients with acute lung injury often results in the need for the support of mechanical ventilation. High tidal volume (V(T)) mechanical ventilation can increase lung damage through lung inflammation, but the mechanisms are unclear. We hypothesized that a colloid supply with hydroxyethyl starch would decrease neutrophil infiltration, lung edema, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production in mice exposed to high V(T… CONTINUE READING
