Pulmonary and systemic effects of increased negative inspiratory intrathoracic pressure in dogs.

Abstract

Croup and epiglottitis, which cause greater than normal negative inspiratory intrathoracic pressure (NIIP), have been associated with pulmonary edema. To examine the effects of increased NIIP per se on blood gases, hemodynamics, and lung water content, we carried out 2 types of experiments in 18 anesthetized dogs. Short-term, low-pressure experiments (6… (More)
