Perfluorocarbon induced alterations in pulmonary mechanics.

Abstract

Perfluorocarbon (PFC) compounds induce pulmonary hyperinflation and respiratory distress in some animals following intravenous administration. This study was designed to quantify the effects of two PFC emulsions on lung volumes and compliance and to identify the mechanism of pulmonary hyperinflation. New Zealand White rabbits received isotonic saline (3 ml… (More)
