Lymph flow from edematous dog lungs.


We measured the flow rate (QLV) from cannulated lung lymph vessels in anesthetized dogs. Low-resistance lymph cannulas were used and the vessels were cannulated at the lung hilus. When we increased left atrial pressure to 42.9 +/- 5.7 (SD) cmH2O (base line = 6.6 +/- 4.6 cmH2O), the lungs became edematous and QLV increased from a base line of 20.4 +/- 21.5… (More)
