Similarly, arterial and LV elastance were obversely correlated--inversely with NTproBNP and positively with NTproCNP (Table 4).
Compliance and static compliance values were lowest in the SS group, and elastance and static elastance values were highest in the SS group.
In mechanical ventilation for respiratory disease, mild PEEP levels and recruitment maneuver avoided progressive alveolar collapse and possible lung consolidation, improved arterial oxygenation, and reduced elastance of the respiratory system [46].

Previous V-P shunt implantation with overdrainage manifestations may cause reduced ventricular wall compliance and increase of the elastance, thus elimination of compensation mechanisms during acute intracranial hypertension [8].
"This could be due to inflammation, mucus, thickening of the airway lining, or loss of the natural elastance [ability to return to its original dimensions following the removal of pressure] of the lung," he says.
Chapters cover the linear single-compartment model and implications for lung resistance and elastance, nonlinear single-compartment models and implications for flow limitation, linear two-compartment models, the general linear model, inverse models of lung impedance, the constant phase model of impedance, and nonlinear dynamic models.
