Abstract

Thrombin is involved in various inflammatory responses. In sepsis, coagulation abnormalities are major complications. Acute lung iniury is one of the most life-threatening problems that can result from sepsis. We hypothesized that high-dose heparin might be effective in attenuating acute lung injury in our sepsis model. Female sheep (n = 16) were surgically prepared for the study. After a tracheotomy, 48 breaths of cotton smoke (< 40°C) were insufflated into the airway. Afterwards, live Pseudomonas aeruginosa (5 x l011 colony-forming units) bacteria were instilled into the lung. All sheep were ventilated mechanically with 100% O2, and were divided into three groups: a heparin infusion group (n = 6), a Ringer's lactate infusion group (n = 6), and a sham-injury group (n = 4; surgically prepared in the same fashion but receiving no inhalation injury or bacteria). The treatment was started 1 h after the insult, and was continued thereafter for 24 h. The dose of heparin was adjusted by monitoring to target an activated clotting time of between 300 and 400 s (baseline = approx. 150 s). Sheep exposed to lung injury presented with typical hyperdynamic cardiovascular changes, including an increased cardiac output and a fall in systemic vascular resistance. There was a decrease in the arterial partial pressure of O2. In conclusion, high-dose heparin did not prevent lung dysfunction in this model, in which acute lung injury was induced by combined smoke and septic challenge.
