PURPOSE: Vaporized perfluorocarbon has been shown to improve gas exchange and pulmonary mechanics in acute lung injury. However, the mechanism of action of this technique is still poorly understood. The authors tested the hypothesis that administration of vaporized perfluorocarbon may improve surfactant proteins synthesizing in LPS-induced acute lung injury.
