Airway closure measurements were made with the bolus technique on eight healthy subjects, who were in a supine position prior to and during anaesthesia. Measurements were made on an expiration following vital capacity (VC) and 30% VC. Closing volume (CV) was calculated prior to anaesthesia, and closing capacity (CC)--functional residual capacity (FRC) was… (More)
