Patients with pneumococcal pneumonia are often given fluids intravenously for hydration and maintenance of circulating blood volume. We studied the effects of plasma volume expansion on respiratory gas exchange and pneumonia size in a canine model of lobar pneumonia. Seven ventilated anesthetized dogs (Group T) with left lower lobe pneumococcal pneumonia were infused with dextran 75 in 0.9% saline solution to increase the pulmonary capillary wedge pressure to 10 mmHg for 3 h. These were… CONTINUE READING
