Lung weight, extravascular water content, hemoglobin content as an index of blood congestion, and DNA content as an index of cellular content, were determined for 57 patients dying from multiple, extrathoracic trauma. This report, which confirms previous publications, concerns itself in particular with the problems of determination of the "normal" lung weight. Studies of the influence of survival time on the lung showed that lung weight may significantly increase to twice its value after very… CONTINUE READING
