Pulmonary function with expiratory resistive loading in healthy volunteers

Daniel Cannon, Jyotika Erram, Monica Bari & Antoinette Domingo
Expiratory flow limitation is a key characteristic in obstructive pulmonary diseases. To study abnormal lung mechanics isolated from heterogeneities of obstructive disease, we measured pulmonary function in healthy adults with expiratory loading. Thirty-seven volunteers (25±5 yr) completed spirometry and body plethysmography under control and threshold expiratory loading of 7, 11 cmH2O, and a subset at 20 cmH2O (n=11). We analyzed the shape of the flow-volume relationship with rectangular area ratio (RAR; Ma et al., Respir...
