Pulmonary mechanics and diffusion after 'shock lung'.

PMID:  1145529     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Pulmonary function studies performed in seven patients who had recovered from 'shock lung' showed a highly significant decrease of diffusing properties of the lung, a slight loss of lung recoil pressure, and a borderline increase of residual volume with normal vital capacity and total lung capacity. Pulmonary compliance was normal. The interpretation of these findings is discussed.
