We investigated the pathophysiological alterations seen with combined burn and smoke inhalation injuries by focusing on pulmonary vascular permeability and cardiopulmonary function compared with those seen with either burn or smoke inhalation injury alone. To estimate the effect of factors other than injury, the experiments were also performed with no injury in the same experimental setting. Lung edema was most severe in the combined injury group. Our study revealed that burn injury does not… CONTINUE READING
