To investigate the effect of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) on the pulmonary epithelial permeability, we measured the clearance rate of nebulized sodium pertechnetate (99mTcO4-) and diethylenetriaminepentaacetate (99mTc-DTPA) before and after a 4-h period of mechanical ventilation in anesthetized mongrel dogs. The animals also underwent experiments with 4 h of spontaneous breathing (SB) and intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (IPPV) with and without addition of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) for comparison. After IPPV and SB there was no change in the clearance rate of either 99mTcO4- or 99mTc-DTPA. After IPPV + PEEP and HPOV (8 and 16 Hz), there was an increase in the clearance rate of 99mTc-DTPA, but an increase in clearance rate of 99mTcO4- was seen after IPPV + PEEP only. In a separate group of dogs an increase in end-tidal lung volume was demonstrated after 4 h of ventilation with IPPV + PEEP (but not after HFOV), and this may account for the measured increase in 99mTcO4- clearance. We conclude that an increase in 99mTc-DTPA clearance rate after HFOV signifies an increase in pulmonary epithelial permeability, possibly through the mechanism of damage to the intercellular junctions during HFOV.
