Effect of Frequency and Tidal Volume on Pleural Pressure in Rabbits during High Frequency Ventilation

Abstract

Regional effects of the chest wall on airway pressure transmission were studied during high frequency ventilation in anesthetized rabbits. We measured airway pressure (Paw), esophageal pressure (Pes), and costal pleural pressure (Ppl) by a rib capsule and flow and volume with a calibrated pneumotachograph. Using a closed circuit, pressures and flow were… (More)
