Alveolar Micromechanics in Bleomycin-Induced Lung Injury.

08:00 EDT 10th August 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Alveolar Micromechanics in Bleomycin-Induced Lung Injury."

Lung injury results in intra-tidal alveolar recruitment and derecruitment (R/D) and alveolar collapse, creating stress concentrators that increase strain and aggravate injury.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Lung damage that is caused by the adverse effects of PULMONARY VENTILATOR usage. The high frequency and tidal volumes produced by a mechanical ventilator can cause alveolar disruption and PULMONARY EDEMA.

A complex of related glycopeptide antibiotics from Streptomyces verticillus consisting of bleomycin A2 and B2. It inhibits DNA metabolism and is used as an antineoplastic, especially for solid tumors.

The ratio of alveolar ventilation to simultaneous alveolar capillary blood flow in any part of the lung. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Injury following pressure changes; includes injury to the eustachian tube, ear drum, lung and stomach.

Water content outside of the lung vasculature. About 80% of a normal lung is made up of water, including intracellular, interstitial, and blood water. Failure to maintain the normal homeostatic fluid exchange between the vascular space and the interstitium of the lungs can result in PULMONARY EDEMA and flooding of the alveolar space.
