The pulmonary vasoconstrictor response to hypoxia: effects of inhibitors of prostaglandin biosynthesis.

Abstract

The main purpose of the present work was to determine whether prostaglandins (PGs) synthetised in the lungs mediate the vasoconstrictor response to acute alveolar hypoxia. Isolated and ventilated lungs of rats were perfused at 37 degrees C with homologous blood at constant-volume, pulsatile inflow, and pressor responses to 3 min periods of standardized… (More)
