Inflammatory Response: Vascular Permeability

  • Inflammation results in vasodilation which results in hyperemia (blood congestion) which results in redness and heat

  • Chemicals liberated by the inflammatory response increase the permeability of local capillaries

  • Exudate—fluid containing proteins, clotting factors, and antibodies

  • Exudate seeps into tissue spaces causing local edema (swelling), which contributes to the sensation of pain
