Compliance and static compliance values were lowest in the SS group, and elastance and static elastance values were highest in the SS group.
We observed significantly lower compliance and higher elastance on D21 in mice with prenatal exposure compared with controls, but there was no significant difference in airway resistance.
Essentially similar results were observed for the coefficients of G and for elastance H, measures of the lung periphery and for Rn, a measure of the central airways (see Figure S1A-C).
Offspring exposed to arsenic had significantly higher tissue elastance (p = 0.
We assessed Newtonian resistance (Rn), which largely reflects the resistance of the conducting airways, and the coefficients of lung tissue damping (G) and lung tissue elastance (H), which reflect changes in the small airways and pulmonary parenchyma.
A patient with greatly increased elastance and short time constant (e.
There are no set targets of pressure, volume or flow, rather the airway pressure is increased or decreased in proportion to the patient effort via positive feedback control using respiratory elastance and resistance as the feedback signals (16,43).
Arsenic-exposed C57BL/6 mice had significantly higher tissue damping and tissue elastance (p < 0.
Secretions and cardiac pulsation may cause undulations and vibrations that have little to do with parenchyma elastance.
Airway resistance and airway and tissue elastance were significantly decreased.
Impedance incorporates patient-ventilator system elastance, resistance, and inertance.
