Airway resistance and tissue elastance from input or transfer impedance in bronchoconstricted monkeys.


Ascaris suum (AS) challenge in nonhuman primates is used as an animal model of human asthma. The primary goal of this study was to determine whether the airways and respiratory tissues in monkeys that are bronchoconstricted by AS inhalation behave similarly to those in asthmatic humans. Airway resistance (Raw) and tissue elastance (Eti) were estimated from… (More)
