In eight normal subjects airways resistance (Raw) was assessed over six ranges of airflow (about zero flow at both minimum and maximum lung volumes) using an automated whole body plethysmograph. The intervals of flow used were 21s-1 and 11s-1 spanning zero flow, and 11s-1 and 0.51s-1 measured up to and from zero flow. The wider intervals gave less variable results, the coefficients of variation being of the order 11%, 15%, and 22% for the 2, 1, and 0.51s-1 intervals respectively. In all… CONTINUE READING
