To determine the physiologic cardiopulmonary abnormalities leading to death when pneumonectomy is required to stop bleeding in patients in hemorrhagic shock, we compared cardiopulmonary responses to resuscitation in pigs undergoing hemorrhagic shock alone, pneumonectomy alone, and hemorrhagic shock plus pneumonectomy. Four shock-plus-pneumonectomy pigs died acutely from right heart failure. When the five remaining shock-plus-pneumonectomy pigs were compared to the two control groups, pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
