Pressure-volume measurements and the punch indentation test are used to obtain the bulk modulus (kappa) and the shear modulus (mu) of lung parenchyma of air- and liquid-filled rabbit lungs. Plots of kappa and mu vs. transpulmonary pressure obtained from these measurements indicate that there is very little difference between the elastic behavior of the air- and liquid-filled lung, suggesting that the mechanism of resisting deformation in both cases is similar. On the other hand, from plots of… CONTINUE READING
