observatons of mucus flow in the trachea were made on greyhounds under barbiturate anaesthesia breathing air at 37°C, at various levels of relative humidity, through an endotracheal tube. The distance travelled by a marker, lycopodium powder, in the mucus was measured at 5-minute intervals throughs a right-angled telescope passed doen the endotracheal tube. Mucus flow at an inspired relative humidity of 100% was comparable to publiched values. No diffrence between flows at inspired relatives… Expand
