Abstract

Morphometric data was acquired from silicon casts of airway trees from 3 mature and 2 immature rabbits. This data was converted into new stochastic models that compute lung resistance (RL) and elastance (EL) for immature and mature rabbits. In general, the new models provide the first ever capability to compare structure function relationships in mature and immature lungs in the same species.
