5 ml/h or a volume of approximately 400 ml/day. The flow rate via the lymphatics is linear with their maximum capacity for a transudate at 24 S. Cafarotti et al. 28 ml/kg/h . Numerous studies have shown that exudates and fluid with protein/cells flow away mainly via the lymphatic system. Both pleural sheets are also able to directly absorb aqueous fluid due to the relatively equal osmolarity on both sides of the serosa. 1 Air or Gas Air and other gases are not detectable in the pleural space under normal conditions.
Natural law (2nd law of thermodynamics) defines that the pressure between two adjacent spaces is equalized if the bounding surface allows. e. lung and pleural space). Reference pressure is the atmospheric pressure. The weight of air over the earth is 10 tons per square meter. e. higher or lower than the atmospheric pressure. 1. 22 S. Cafarotti et al. 3 C hanges in Pleural Pressure During Breathing Lung tissue is very elastic and is able to both increase and decrease its volume. e. in atelectasis, in a pneumothorax, during single lung ventilation) the lung volume decreases from Vtot (2500 cm3) to V0 (700 cm3).
Indications for Draining the Chest 49 Pleural effusions can be massive leading to significant cardiopulmonary symptoms in patients with advanced malignant disease. Aspiration may be indicated in emergency situations to relieve symptoms. Repeated aspirations should only be done if life expectancy is less than four weeks because there is an increased infection risk with each additional instrumentation. e. via Seldinger technique).
