1 February 16, 2010 NPB113 Respiration 2-1 Static Properties of Lung, Chest Wall & Respiratory System Compliance Curves for Lung, Chest Wall & Total Respiratory System Compliance ( Δ V/ Δ P) the lung decreases as volume increases. Compliance chest wall low at near 0 % VC, increases near FRC to resting position of chest wall, & then decreases from 60% VC to 100% VC. At FRC, P tr for lung and chest wall equal in magnitude and opposite direction – inward directed ER/ST forces of lung balance outward directed ER chest wall. At any volume P trrs = P trL + P trcw . At volumes above FRC, compliance of the respiratory system decreases greater transmural pressure and greater muscular effort required for an increase in volume.
