Splanchnic perfusion in ovine sepsis

Effect of modified hemoglobin and L-arginine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Introduction: Modified hemoglobin solutions like pyridoxalated hemoglobin polyoxyethylene conjugate (PHP) are able to reverse the hyperdynanuc circulatory state seen during sepsis. Hemoglobin binds nitric oxide (NO) which is produced in large amounts during sepsis. Splanchnic perfusion is often compromized in sepsis. We investigated the effect of sepsis. PHP and the NO precursor L-arginine on blood How to selected splanchnic organs. Methods: Six sheep were instrumented with arterial, venous, left aerial and pulmonary artery catheters. After 5 days they received an infusion of 6-106 colonyforming units/kg/h Pseudomoneu aeruginosa. After 24 h an infusion with 20 mg/kg/h PHP was begun and continued for the rest of the experiment Four h later. L-arginine was given as a 100 mg/kg bolus followed by a 500 mg/kg/h infusion for 1 h. Fluorencem microspneres for Mood flow détermination were injected at 0, 24, 28, and 29 h. Statistical analysis by ANOVA; p<0.05 was considered significant. Results: shown in the table.
