Respiratory mechanics, chest wall configuration, and lung morphometry were determined in rats before and at 30 (PTX.30) and 60 (PTX.60) min after pneumothorax induction (intrathoracic injection of 8 ml of room air; 50% collapse). Pneumothorax increased respiratory system and lung elastances and viscoelastic/inhomogeneous pressures in both groups, but… CONTINUE READING
