Abstract

The pulmonary endothelium has extensive capacity for removing and/or metabolizing certain monoamines, prostaglandins, and peptides carried in the mixed venous blood. Thus, the lungs influence the arterial concentrations of these substrates. In addition, it has been suggested that changes in these endothelial functions may portend more serious damage, and that if these functions could be monitored they might be sensitive indicators of impending lung damage or failure in situations commonly associated with pulmonary injury.
