Recently, mice have been extensively used to investigate the pathogenesis of pulmonary disease because appropriate murine models, including transgenic mice, are being increasingly developed. However, little information about the lung mechanics of mice is currently available. We questioned whether lung tissue behavior and the coupling between dissipative and elastic processes, hysteresivity (eta), in mice would be different from those in the other species. To address this question, we… CONTINUE READING
