Elastic and Resistive Properties of the Respiratory System

  • W. A. Zin

Abstract

This chapter will consider basic aspects of respiratory-system mechanics in order to provide a background for the analysis of the most common disorders related to the elastic and resistive components of the lung and chest wall. Excellent reviews articles can be consulted, if further details are desired [19b].
