A constant volume plethysmographic technique has been developed to measure specific airway conductance (sGaw) in unanesthetized spontaneously breathing guinea pigs. The technique utilizes a specially designed animal restraining device and mask piece. sGaw is measured at end-expiration and does not require knowledge of thoracic gas volume. Control values are… CONTINUE READING
