Table 1 Diffuse alveolar damage score

From: Focal ischemic stroke leads to lung injury and reduces alveolar macrophage phagocytic capability in rats

Parameter Sham group Stroke group
Lung parenchyma
 Edema (0–16) 1 (0.25–1.75) 6 (6.0–8.25)*
 Inflammation (0–16) 0.5 (0.0–1.75) 2.5 (2.0–3.75)**
 Atelectasis (0–16) 2.0 (2.0–3.5) 4.5 (3.0–6.0)
 Cumulative DAD score (0–48) 4.0 (4.0–4.75) 14 (12.5–15.5)**
Airways
 Bronchoconstriction (0–16) 1.0 (1.0–1.0) 12 (10.5–12)***
  1. Cumulative diffuse alveolar damage (DAD) score representing injury from interstitial edema, inflammation, and atelectasis, as well as bronchoconstriction in Sham and Stroke groups. Values are median (interquartile range) of 6 animals/group
  2. *p < 0.001
  3. **p < 0.0001
  4. ***p < 0.05 vs Sham
