Nitric oxide increases dramatically in air exhaled from lung regions with occluded vessels.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We observed dramatic changes in exhaled nitric oxide concentration (DeltaNOE) during wedge measurements, and hypothesised that occlusion and redistribution of pulmonary blood flow affects NOE. METHODS We inflated the balloon of the pulmonary artery catheter and measured NOE and central hemodynamics in closed chest anesthetised pigs (n = 11… (More)
