Hypocapnia and measurement of airflow resistance and dynamic compliance as functions of respiratory frequency.

Abstract

Measurements of lung mechanical behaviour as a function of respiratory frequency may be associated with significantly increased ventilation at high breathing rates. It follows that these measurements may be influenced by hypocapnia which has been shown to increase airflow resistance and to decrease dynamic compliance. To examine this possibility we… (More)
