Acute Effects of Bilateral Lung Volume Reduction Surgery on Lung and Chest Wall Mechanical Properties: Major advantages

The major advantages of our measurements were the ability to control/, Vt, and ventilatory waveform, all factors that complicate interpretation of measurements of lung elastance and resistance from spontaneously breathing patients. In addition, calculations of lung resistance were made independently of the effects of flow limitation on the expiratory waveform,…
