Influence of Changes in Intrathoracic and Central Venous Pressure on Cardiac Filling Dynamics


Changes in the ratio between intrathoracic and central venous pressure were studied in narcotized cats under conditions of constant positive or negative pressure ventilation. Transformation of elastic characteristics in the respiratory system caused by changes in intrathoracic pressure led to inversion of the ratio between transpulmonary intrathoracic and… (More)
