In the past, the relationship between pulmonary hysteresis and a model of the recruitment-derecruitment of lung units has been explored (Cheng, W., DeLong, D.S., Franz, G.N., Petsonk, E.L., Frazer, D.G., 1995, Resp. Physiol. 102, 205-215). The recruitment process is characterized by a sequence of events which represents discrete configurational changes in lung structure. It is assumed that energy released during the opening of lung units is associated with the formation of discontinuous lung… CONTINUE READING
