Example text

This variability results primarily from the inability to select precisely analogous terminal units in different animals. McBride and Chuang have described a technique for comparing the dimensions of airways at various levels among individuals that is not influenced by differences in the number of terminal units. This method is based on the relationship between the cross-sectional area of an airway and the number and size of terminal bronchioles subtended by that airway, a relationship that has been directly or indirectly recognized by many previous investigators (Ross, 1957; Hooper, 1977) and one that reflects the fact that airways of a given diameter tend to subtend a similar volume of lung or number of terminal units.
