2. OBJECTIVES. Know the definitions of all the listed lung volumes and capacitiesUnderstand how lung volumes and capacities are measuredUnderstand the concepts of transmural pressure and complianceBe able to predict the impact of changes in lung and chest wall compliances on FRCUnderstand how surface tension impacts on lung compliance and leads to hysteresis in the lung P-V relationshipBe able to explain how surfactant reduces surface tension and reduces the tendency for alveoli to collapse22
