C OMROE, Nisell and Nims (I) have suggested that measurements upon purely passive expiration curves may be used as a rapid method for demonstrating changes in the mechanical properties of the lungs and thorax of animals and man. Essentially, their technique consists of inflating the lungs of animals or man (made apneic by deep anesthesia, curarization, or hyperventilation) to a known alveolar pressure and then permitting them to deflate passively, by elastic recoil alone, during which time… CONTINUE READING
