The effects of indomethacin on the circulatory and respiratory responses to BaSO4-induced pulmonary microembolization were studied in anesthetized dogs. It was found that indomethacin blocks the bronchoconstrictor response but not the circulatory responses to pulmonary embolization. It is suggested that indomethacin blocks the formation and release of prostaglandins due to pulmonary embolization. Author
