BACKGROUND Alveolar type-II(ATII)-cells are exposed to mechanical stretch during breathing and mechanical ventilation. Increased stretch may contribute to lung injury. METHODS The influence of three stretching patterns (characterized by frequency [min (-1)] - increase in surface area [%]: S40 - 13, S60 - 13, S40 - 30) on parameters of apoptosis, necrosis(More)
