Because of the discrepancies between the arterial and venous occlusion technique and the micropuncture technique in estimating pulmonary capillary pressure gradient, we compared measurements made with the two techniques in the same preparations (isolated left lower lobe of dog lung). In addition, we also obtained direct and reliable measurements of pressures in 0.9-mm arteries and veins using a retrograde catheterization technique, as well as a microvascular pressure made with the double… CONTINUE READING
