In collapsible biologic conduits, occlusion and cessation of flow occur when upstream pressure falls below a critical pressure (Pcrit). To examine the relationship between Pcrit and the development of upper airway occlusion, we examined the relationship between maximal inspiratory airflow and nasal pressure in seven normal subjects during sleep. At varying levels of subatmospheric pressure applied to a nasal mask during non-rapid-eye-movement (NREM) sleep, maximal inspiratory airflow decreased… CONTINUE READING
