A number of reports have appeared during recent years on the changes of the physical properties of the lung in cardiopulmonary diseases.1-26 Valuable new information has been obtained on the fundamental nature of different disorders, though only a comparatively small number of subjects have been studied. It is the purpose of this report to describe the results on a series of 100 subjects: 25 normal subjects and 75 patients with various types of cardiopulmonary disease.
The subjects were studied in the basal state and in the supine position. Transpulmonary pressures, instantaneous air flow rates and tidal volumes
