Casts of the bronchial tree of dogs' lungs have been made with virtually nonshrinking plastic. One of these casts has been completely measured. From the measurements, an empirical equation was derived which predicted the number of terminal bronchi supplied by any given bronchus in the lung. Making the assumption that each terminal bronchus transports equal quantities of gas at the same rate to alveoli, a series of equations was derived which described the volume flow rate, the pressure gradient… CONTINUE READING
