Physiol. 28(5) : 596-608. 1970.Although lungs are exposed to transpulmonary pressure, the air spaces within are distended solely by forces applied from surrounding tissues. By relating these forces to the areas on which they operate, we(More)

To quantify the degree of association, if any, between lung size and airway size in humans, the ratio of a measurement known to be sensitive to airway size (maximal expiratory flow divided by static recoil pressure at 50% of vital capacity) to one sensitive to lung size (vital capacity) was examined. If lung and airway size changed together, this ratio(More)

I g64.-Esophageal pressure has been measured in eight healthy men during breath holding (glottis open) at various fixed lung volumes with a rubber balloon (length: IO cm; perimeter: 3.5(More)
It has been suggested that the act of taking a stride produces substantial respiratory volume displacement and that this assists the respiratory muscles during locomotion. We measured the flow at the mouth associated with stride in walking and running humans and found it to be 1-2% of respiratory tidal volume, which is too small to make an appreciable(More)
