Offspring infected with influenza had significantly higher tissue elastance (p = 0.
Arsenic-exposed C57BL/6 mice had significantly higher tissue damping and 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.
If inspiratory effort and muscle tone add to the positive pressure applied at the airway opening, the effective elastance of the chest wall may be less positive or even negative.
Airway resistance and airway and tissue elastance were significantly decreased.
