Maybe ir could mean ' unaccustomed' in this context.

As the subject matter is of a medical nature, I think the best translation would be 'unaccustomed' or perhaps even 'unaffected' if this seems more consistent with the rest of the text.

I think that in the medical literature, infiltrate is used to mean "inject fluids" into the patients, usually with a needle. I have tried to locate an article in English on respiratory acidosis but there are so many. I found this article
particularly useful in terms of terminology.
