Effects of longitudinal laparotomy on respiratory system, lung, and chest wall mechanics.

Abstract

In six sedated, anesthetized, paralyzed, and mechanically ventilated guinea pigs, total respiratory system (RT,rs), lung, and chest wall resistances and respiratory system (Est,rs), lung, and chest wall (Est,w) elastances were determined before and after longitudinal laparotomy. Furthermore the resistances were also split into their initial and difference… (More)
