The cardiopulmonary response to continuous administration of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) was studied in chronically instrumented sheep. LPS was administered in doses of 0 (sham), 6, 9, 12, and 24 for 24 h. No significant changes in the measured variables occurred in the sham group and in the 6 group. With 9, 12, and 24, cardiac index rose and peripheral resistance fell to the same extent in all three groups. Lung lymph flow (QL) increased with increasing concentration of LPS. These elevations in QL occurred in the presence of only minor increases in the pulmonary artery pressure, which rose to the same extent in the 9, 12, and 24 groups. Consequently, the changes in QL were attributable to changes in fluid conductance of the pulmonary microvasculature rather than variations in hydrostatic pressure. The increase in QL correlated with a decrease in prekallikrein levels (r = 0.97), indicating that the changes in fluid conductance might have been kinin mediated.
