Effect of the chest wall on pressure-volume curve analysis of acute respiratory distress syndrome lungs.
The pressure-volume curve or loop offers a good and familiar example.
In 90's years, thanks to a new approach for lung injury, it was suggested that the adequate PEEP level for ARDS patients could be chosen by the analysis of pressure-volume curve [36].
Some (and probably most) fan types exhibit instability when operated in this region of positive slope in the pressure-volume curve.
The hypothesis has been proposed that continuous pulsation of arterial blood is transformed by both non-linear components of CSF pressure-volume compensation (exponential pressure-volume curve) and regulation of CBF (autoregulation) to appear as the additional term "[ICP.sub.vasogemc]" to complete (1) formula [4].
Furthermore, DA-9701 drastically increased the gastric accommodation in Beagle dogs, shifting the pressure-volume curve toward considerably higher volume compared to the control, which was comparable to that of cisapride.
Factors which affect the diastolic pressure-volume curve. Cite Res 1978; 42:171-180.
In a slow reversible process, the work done in expanding a gas depends on the path of the pressure-volume curve. The work done in such a process will be given as,
Because the compliance of the respiratory system changes as the lung opens up or over expands, the contours of the inflation pressure-volume curve have been considered to offer valuable - if imperfect - indicators of the safety and danger zones of operation.
