The effect of methoxyflurane on pulmonary vascular resistance and hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction in the isolated perfused cat lung.

Abstract

The effects of methoxyflurane on pulmonary vascular resistance and the pulmonary vasoconstrictor response to alveolar hypoxia were studied in isolated cat lungs perfused at a constant flow. Methoxyflurane decreased pulmonary vascular resistance and depressed the pulmonary vasoconstrictor response to hypoxia.
