Abstract:

Ventilation-perfusion changes after right-sided pulmonary contusion PC in swine were investigated by means of the multiple inert gas elimination technique MIGET. Anesthetized swine injury, n 8 control, n 6 sustained a right-chest PC by a captive-bolt apparatus. This was followed by a 12-mlkg hemorrhage, resuscitation, and reinfusion of shed blood. MIGET and thoracic computed tomography CT were performed before and 6 h after injury.
