Pressure available for expiration in chronic airway obstruction.

Abstract

The pressure generated at 0.1 s after the onset of expiration measures the rate of rise of expiratory pressure potentially available for expiration. P0.1e increased with increasing the frequency of breathing and was higher in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients than in controls. In normal subjects breathing under resistive load P0.1e… (More)
