Postinspiratory activity of costal and crural diaphragm.


Because the first stage of expiration or "postinspiration" is an active neurorespiratory event, we expect some persistence of diaphragm electromyogram (EMG) after the cessation of inspiratory airflow, as postinspiratory inspiratory activity (PIIA). The costal and crural segments of the mammalian diaphragm have different mechanical and proprioceptive… (More)
