Perfluorocarbon-associated gas exchange improves oxygenation, lung mechanics, and survival in a model of adult respiratory distress syndrome.


OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of perfluorocarbon-associated gas exchange to volume controlled positive pressure breathing in supporting gas exchange, lung mechanics, and survival in an acute lung injury model. DESIGN A prospective, randomized study. SETTING A university medical school laboratory approved for animal research. SUBJECTS Neonatal… (More)
