11/11. ethchlorvynol (Placidyl)-induced pulmonary edema.Two patients experienced severe nonhemodynamic pulmonary edema following the intravenous injection of 25 and 40 mg/kg of body weight of ethchlorvynol (Placidyl). The pulmonary edema cleared rapidly. Injection of Placidyl (12 to 80 mg/kg of body weight) intravenously into dogs caused acute, severe, nonhemodynamic pulmonary edema (as evidenced by markedly elevated lung weights and microscopic evidence of intra-alveolar edema), hypotension with a relative bradycardia, and a decreased cardiac output. Injection of polyethylene glycol, the vehicle in which ethchlorvynol is diluted, did not reproduce the syndrome.
