intrapulmonary pressure

intrapulmonary pressure

At the first of inspiration, lung olume increases and
intrapulmonary pressure decreases below atmospheric
pressure. Air enters aleoli under the pressure difference.
(ntrapulmonary pressure increases as the increasing of
gas in lung.
At the last of inspiration, intrapulmonary pressure is
e2ual to atmospheric pressure and the air flow stops.

At the first of expiration, lung olume decreases
and intrapulmonary pressure increases until it
exceeds atmospheric pressure. Air outflows lungs
and intrapulmonary pressure decreases by and by.
(ntrapulmonary pressure is e2ual to
atmospheric pressure at the last of expiration.
