Effects of Vascular Distention on Lung Inflation4

    Abstract

    levels of vascular pressure that were applied. When the vascular pressure was raised to 30 cm. of water, an inflationary force of only 1 to 2 cm. of water was developed; at a vascular pressure of 40 cm. of water it rose to about 2.5 cm. of water; at levels of 60 to 80 cm. of water, the change in airway pressure never exceeded 5 cm. of water.
