Effects of Vascular Distention on Lung Inflation4


    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.
