Alveolar hypoxia causes pulmonary oedema associated with increased lung capillary pressure and decreased alveolar fluid reabsorption. However, the role of altered permeability is unclear. The aim of the present study was to test whether hypoxia affects alveolar permeability and induces pulmonary oedema in rat lungs, and whether terbutaline affects oedema formation. Isolated lungs of normoxic rats were perfused at a constant pressure (12 cmH2O) and exposed to different levels of oxygenation (1.5… CONTINUE READING
