Pulmonary Mechanics and the Work of Breathing in the Lizard , Gekko Gecko

Abstract

Measurements of pulmonary mechanics made on anaesthetized specimens of the Tokay gecko Gekkogecko (Linn6), indicate that both static and dynamic pulmonary mechanics are dominated by the mechanics of the body cavity and chest wall. The lungs are relatively large and compliant and offer little resistance to air flow at any of the ventilation frequencies (f… (More)
