Inhaled and deposited man-made vitreous fibers (MMVF) 10a (low-fluorine preparation of Schuller 901 insulation glass) were studied by electron microscopy in hamster lungs, fixed by intravascular perfusion within 23 +/- 2 min (SD) of the initial inhalation. We found fibers on the surfaces of conducting airways and alveoli. In the airways, 89% of the fibers(More)
Normal subjects preserve tidal volume (VT) in the face of added inspiratory resistance by increasing maximal amplitude and duration of the rising phase of respiratory driving pressure (DP) and by changing the shape of this phase to one that is more concave to the time axis. To explore the possible role of chest wall afferents in mediating these responses,(More)
