Respiratory-related bronchial rhythmic constrictions in the dog with extracorporeal circulation.

Abstract

Respiratory-related bronchial rhythmic contraction was quantitatively analyzed in eight paralyzed dogs. The caliber of the fifth-generation bronchus was continuously measured as the pressure (Pbr) of a balloon-tipped catheter under the condition of complete immobilization due to extracorporeal oxygenation. Pbr changed rhythmically in synchrony with phrenic… (More)
