Abstract

The ventilation power of the lung to overcome friction and elasticity consists of an irreversible component which is to be found in the pressure-volume diagram and of a reversible component which is to be found in the pressure-flow diagram. The effective power which results, is a measure for part of the metabolic losses due to the ventilation mechanism. In physiology, the components of ventilation work are interpreted together in the pressure-volume diagram.
