Figure 5
Correlation between the slope of the linear regression line and Lm in group PE showing significant negative correlation (r = 0.61, p < 0.05). The slope employed in this investigation is derived from the slope in the peripheral area divided by the slope in the main pulmonary artery in each rat in order to adjust the basic supply to pulmonary circulation. The low slope of the linear regression line represents decreased pulmonary blood flow in peripheral circulation in PE, which has never been obtained except for SRA with the HARP detector.  [article HTML]
