  • FAILURE OF THE COLLOID ONCOTIC-PULMONARY ARTERY WEDGE PRESSURE-GRADIENT TO PREDICT CHANGES IN EXTRAVASCULAR LUNG WATER CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE Feeley, T. W., Mihm, F. G., Halperin, B. D., Rosenthal, M. H. 1985; 13 (12): 1025-1028

    Abstract:

    Colloid oncotic pressure (COP), pulmonary artery wedge pressure (WP), and the COP-WP gradient were measured in seven critically ill adult patients and compared with extravascular lung water determined using the thermal-dye double-indicator dilution technique and a bedside lung water computer. Correlation coefficients for changes in extravascular lung water vs. COP, WP, and COP-WP were not significant, and in this patient population the COP-WP gradient did not predict changes in extravascular lung water.
