In six dogs and six weight-matched miniature pigs at baseline and after pulmonary embolization, pulmonary arterial compliance was determined using the pulse pressure method (CPPM), the three-element windkessel model (CWK-3), and the ratio of stroke volume to pulse pressure (SV/PP). CPPM was lower in pigs than in dogs at baseline (0.72 ± 0.23 vs. 1.14 ± 0.29 ml/mmHg, P < 0.05) and after embolism (0.37 ± 0.14 vs. 0.54 ± 0.16 ml/mmHg, P = 0.07) at matched flow, but not at matched flow and pressure… CONTINUE READING
