BACKGROUND In acute lung injury, when pulmonary microvascular permeability is enhanced, transvascular fluid filtration mainly depends on pulmonary capillary pressure. Inhaled nitric oxide has been shown to decrease pulmonary capillary pressure. Therefore, the effect of inhaled nitric oxide at a concentration of 40 ppm on pulmonary transvascular albumin flux was studied in nine patients with acute lung injury. METHODS Transvascular albumin flux was measured by a double radioisotope method… CONTINUE READING
