Abstract

Atelectasis and emphysema were induced in rabbits after anesthesia and IPPB for 1 hour at 30 cm water pressure. The pulmonary surfactant became coarsely granular and appeared in the form of large drops. A correlation is suggested to exist between this phenomenon and the atelectasis and emphysema which developed during IPPB.
