Pulmonary injury depresses cardiac systolic function through Starling mechanism.


To determine whether pulmonary microvascular injury or lung hyperinflation changes left ventricular (LV) performance and whether ventricular interaction plays a role in mediating such changes, we studied seven open-chest, closed-pericardium, anesthetized dogs before and after right ventricular (RV) injections of 150- to 200-micron glass beads. Because… (More)
