Airway Conductance

Description

In respiratory physiology, airway resistance is the resistance of the respiratory tract to airflow during inspiration and expiration. Airway resistance is markedly affected by changes in the diameter of the airways, therefore diseases affecting the respiratory tract can increase airway resistance. Airway Conductance is the mathematical inverse of airway resistance.
