Separate thoracic and abdominal lymph flow in the dog.


We present results from an improved dog model, in which lymph flows from the thorax and abdomen are separated. The effect of increased alveolar pressure on lymph flows was studied by the application of positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP). Mean (+/- SD) thoracic lymph flow in 10 dogs was 4.1 ml/h (+/- 2.9) before, and 27.0 ml/h (+/- 17) after the… (More)
