INTRODUCTION  Despite an extensive literature on the circulation in the compressed, collapsed or consolidated lung in pneumothorax, massive atelectasis and lobar pneumonia, we have as yet only few definite ideas on this subject. Views which are most varied, if indeed not diametrically opposed, are upheld by different investigators. For the atelectatic lung, opposite theories have
