• alveolar
  • In order to correctly and effectively conduct PLV, it is essential to properly dose a patient to a specific lung volume (10-15 ml/kg) to recruit alveolar volume redose the lung with PFC liquid (1-2 ml/kg/h) to oppose PFC evaporation from the lung. (wikipedia.org)
  • oxygen
  • The hope is that the liquid will help the transport of oxygen to parts of the lung that are flooded and filled with debris, help remove this debris and open up more alveoli improving lung function. (wikipedia.org)
  • system
  • Moreover, it is possible to study cellular responses to specific hypoxic O 2 concentrations without confounding effects since C. elegans obtain O 2 (and other gasses) by diffusion, as opposed to a facilitated respiratory system 6 . (jove.com)
  • large
  • The present invention relates to an apparatus for atomizing large quantities of liquid such as liquid fuels, water, lotions or the like. (google.com)
  • These prior systems, however, require a highpressure pump or a high-speed motor, are large in size and costly to construct, and cannot achieve a satisfactory degree of liquid atomization. (google.com)
  • One form of such ultrasonic atomizer includes a horn vibrator for amplifying the vibrations from an ultrasonic vibrator up to a level large enough to atomize the liquid supplied to a distal end of the horn. (google.com)
