Abstract:

ACT The objective of this study was to investigate early changes in oxygenation by means of the multiple inert gas elimination technique and in coagulation by means of thromboelastography TEG after right-sided pulmonary contusion PC in swine. Anesthetized swine group 1 n 8 sustained a right-chest PC by a captive-bolt stunner. Multiple inert gas elimination technique, TEG, and thoracic computed tomography CT scans were performed before and 10, 30, 60, and 120 min after injury. Three-dimensional CT scan reconstruction enabled measurement of volumes of poorly VolPoor and nonaerated VolNon lung.
