Alveolar Tissue Fibers and Surfactant Effects on Lung Mechanics – Model Development and Validation on ARDS and IPF Patients
Goal: Alveolar compliance is a main determinant of lung airflow. The compliance of the alveoli is a function of their tissue fiber elasticity, fiber volume, and surface tension. The compliance varies during respiration because of the nonlinear nature of fiber... Read more
